Sign up now for classes!
Space is limited!

Saturday, June 10th

11am-1pm: Nuno Felted Scarft - A fabric felting technique developed by Polly Stirling, a fiber artist from New South Wales, Australia, around 1992. The name is derived from the Japanese word “nuno” meaning cloth. The technique bonds loose fibre, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk gauze, creating a lightweight felt.

2pm-4pm: Basic Rug Hooking - Learn basic hooking techniques to get started and basic finishing techniques. You will receive a kit that includes the pattern, hook, cut wool and a book.

Sunday, June 11th

10am-noon: Freeform Knit/Crochet Shawl - Bring a bagful of leftover yarn and you will learn how to turn them into a work of art. You can use all crochet, all knit or both.

1pm-3pm: Art Yarn Spinning w/Supercoils - Learn the basics of art yarn, but the art of the super coil. We will go over the spinning of a thick and thin single as well as how to create super coils. This is an intermediate-advanced spinning class. No beginners, please.
