Clausens Fibre Garden is a small family farm located in Grand Forks, in the Boundary Region of Southern British Columbia. Our goal is to share our passion for the Fibre Arts through hosting individual and group classes, workshops and retreats.
I don’t remember a time when Fibre and Colour haven’t played an integral part of my life, My earliest memories of my Grandmother was my being with her, in her sitting room while I learned to embroider. Come enjoy a spinning, weaving, felting or anyone of our other wonderful workshops with us..
I remember always wearing a new hand knit sweater that my mother made each year to head off to school. When we sold our Sheep farm and moved north my husband promised one day we would get sheep again. So with retirement coming up fast we decided to buy our little farm and set all those dreams in motion.
