The Oakland Standard: Felt 

When: Sun., June 19, 1 p.m. 2011
Price: museum admission

If you grew up far from a farm and feel a little sheepish around livestock, say baaah-bye to your misgivings at Felt, the first event in The Oakland Standard's Seed Circus series, organized by the Oakland Museum of California. The four-part program aims to acquaint urbanites with nature through discussions and hands-on demonstrations, and this first installment focuses exclusively on man's fleecy friend the sheep. The event features sheep-shearing demonstrations by a real live farmer, the construction of a giant felt rug, bicycle-powered wool carding, and more, followed by a screening of the documentary Sweetgrass (you can probably guess what it's about). At the OaklandMuseum (1000 Oak St., Oakland) on Sunday, June 19. 1 p.m., free with museum admission. 510-238-2200 or
