About the Owner

Here at Dancing Lamb Studio, our head shepherdess and artist, Kara Berlage, has been cultivating her love of lambs, and all things related, since 2001 with her first two sheep–Sweet and Heart. From those two woolie loves, sprung a life long passion of natural fibers and traditional crafting methods. With skills to date in needle felting, knitting, crochet, hand spinning, sewing, quilting, and leatherwork, Kara creates beautiful, unique, and useful artistic items. Plus the high quality materials that we use are grown right here on the woolie backs of our lovely lambs and sheep. And we know that our creations and items will give you (or someone special) years of enjoyment!

Come visit us at our farmstore, Farmstead Creamery & Cafe, near Hayward, WI, where you’ll find Kara’s work plus that of her sister, Laura, who runs Erindale Tapestry Studio. We also feature other local artists as well from jewelry and visual arts to woodworking by their Grandpa from wood harvested right here on the farm! But we are more then an art gallery! Come for our farm fresh foods or enjoy our wood-fired events on summer weekends where you’ll find Chef Kara at the oven or behind the gelato case (yes, she makes artisan sheep’s milk gelato and cheese too!). And if you’re really lucky, you’ll get to hear Laura’s numerous musical talents!
