Sheep indeed get sheared at the Atlanta History Center’s Sheep to Shawl festival, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday, but it’s all good. Not only do they get a warm-weather trim, their wool (a handful of which kids can have as a keepsake), visitors learn, will be be washed, sorted, carded, spun, dyed and, eventually, woven. The event includes crafts demonstrations, a play about South Carolina slave potter David (”Dave the Slave”) Drake music and a petting zoo. Free with museum admission. 130 W. Paces Ferry Road N.W., Atlanta. 404-814-4000, www.atlantahistorycenter.com/S2S. HOWARD POUSNER
