Class Description: Create an original knitted, crocheted, or woven design inspired by images from one of Cameron’s journeys or from one of your own - the journey could be as far away as China or as close as your own backyard! We’ll dive into big piles of fabulous fibers and compile a Fiber Trails storyboard overflowing with yarn snips and wrappings that reflect the textures, colors and patterns of your inspiration. Next we’ll discuss how to convert these snips and wrappings into a finished project, and then create an original design.
Class Date: Saturday, October 28 from 10am to 5pm
Course Fee: $120 for 6 hours of instruction.
Materials: Please note the course fee includes a range of yarns that will be provided, along with images to work from.
Bring the following materials to class:
2 pieces of stiff 4” x 10” cardboard
Please bring knitting needles and/or crochet hooks (different sizes)
Please bring your weaving equipment, e.g. bobbins, shuttles, bobbin winder, warping tools, a loom of your choice - a small tapestry loom, rigid heddle or harness loom.
