GET SCHOOLED: Classes at the Knit Cafe (May)
Here at the Knit Cafe we are very excited to be offering the workshop “Introduction to Rug Hooking” for the very first time! Come and try out this amazing craft.
Wednesday May 26, 6:30-9pm
@The Knit Cafe
You can make more then rugs when you learn to rug hook. You can also make rugs and that is pretty neat! Wall art, cushion covers, trivets and coasters are only some of the things that you can create with the rug hooking technique. Rug hooking is excellent for using up scraps and has terrific potential for self-expression. In this class you can choose any picture or pattern you should desire and make it into your very own rug-hooked design.
Felt Making for Beginners (Flat Felting, Nuno Felting, and 3D Felting)
Sat/Sun May 29, 30
@ The Knit Cafe
What do you get when you mix a bit of water, with a wad of fluff and a little elbow grease? FELT-that’s what!!! Neither knitting nor crocheting is required for this class. In this two-day workshop students will be introduced to the ancient techniques of felt making. They will design and make their own piece of hand-felted cloth, a decorative bowl, a pouch or pocket (ideal for cell phones, ipods, or eyeglass case) and a 3D felted object.
Students will go home equip with their very own felting kit so they can practice their new skills and make endless creations at home.
