YFK is delighted to introduce the offerings for our Adult Craft Camp – Summer 2023!
Each camp session is an opportunity for you to practice or learn a new craft, exercise your creative spirit, and have fun. It’s geared towards beginners, and open to all. We hope our camp offerings will bring out the childlike wonder in you!
About Adult Craft Camp
Fun, creative, exploratory drop-in sessions for 1-4 people (or for some sessions, we’ll let in a few more) that focus on a particular craft/project.
A session is a two-hour class followed by an optional 30 minute practice period where you can choose to continue to craft after your class with any others that choose to stay. Jocelyn will be available for extra help or more questions. (However, the 30 min practice session is just that; i.e., not intended to be an extension to the class teaching time.) Sessions will be held while the shop is open.* The two-hour session is designed to cover approximately an hour of teaching content along with time to practice techniques, work together on the craft/project, and ask questions (i.e., not two hours of teaching time). You may finish early.
You should leave with a new skill, better understanding and/or renewed joy for a craft you practiced in the past, and a finished project or work-in-progress to continue at home.
*From time to time Jocelyn may need to step away to help incoming customers.
Selected Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 1-3pm in the months of June, July and August.
New sessions added for Aug 24 thru Sep 1! The new sessions are a mix of past sessions back due to popular demand, and some new topics!
The session is two hours, plus an optional 30 min of practice time where you can choose to stay and Jocelyn will be available for more help and questions.
Dates for late June, all of July and early August are confirmed and registration is open. We may add dates for late August and/or September, schedule and demand permitting. If you see a session that you like, we encourage you to do it now as we don’t know when we will certainly offer it again.
7/15/23 update: Thank you Yarn Farm Friends for coming to our camp sessions so far! We love crafting with you! We’re planning sessions for the second half of August and will post them in a little while. Stay tuned!
At Yarn Farm Kingston, 21 W. Strand St., Kingston, NY 12401, on the Kingston Waterfront. This neighborhood is also known as the ‘Rondout’ as well as ‘Downtown Kingston’. Parking info can be found here.
How to Attend
Pre-registration is kindly requested. This helps us prepare materials, understand demand, and set up the space. Register online here. In certain cases we may increase a session size and/or offer an additional date if demand is high. So contact us if the session you want is sold out! If we do not have any registered students by 24 hours before the start of a session, we reserve the right to cancel the session. So sign up in advance to make it happen!
Walk-ins may be permitted, space permitting.
Just bring you, a curious mind and patience for yourself and others! Materials will be provided. For specific sessions we may suggest additional tools/materials that you may also bring, if desired, but these will be nice-to-haves.
Class fee of $40 for one session.
There is an additional required materials fee for essential materials used in the session, which in most cases will range from $15-20 and is payable on the day of your session. You will get a 10% student discount for all materials used in class. On the day of your class you may use your 10% discount towards additional (optional) materials and tools or additional shopping.* In many cases the class materials will include tool(s) to keep and use after the class is over.
*There may be rare exclusions (selected items) where we are unable to offer the 10% discount and will let you know if that arises.
Special multi-session pricing:
If you register for four sessions we are pleased to offer you the fifth session free.
If you register for eight sessions we are pleased to offer you two sessions free and a $20 gift card.
Cancellations and Refunds Policy Specific to Adult Craft Camp
Should you be unable to attend your session, please advise us no later than 48 hours in advance. By doing so, you may 1) swap your spot for another available spot/session or 2) take your class fee in the form of a gift card less a $5 processing fee (i.e., $35 gift card value). No refunds after this cut off. Free sessions (received as part of the multi-session pricing) have no cash value. Thank you for your understanding.
