Class Details:

This is a two-part class. Both sections of the class will automatically be placed in your cart when you select one of the sessions.

Everything that we have in our stash is very welcome in this class! It is possible that we have leftovers from previous projects, some skeins found in a thrift store, or maybe a gift from a friend! We would love it if you bring to class different yarn weights with all kinds of fiber contents! In this creative class we will renew the way we look at those yarns, mixing colors, fibers, and textures to create macro motifs and opening a whole new world of possibilities for our stash!

Concepts covered in this class:
- Focused on giving info and tools to encourage the knitters to upcycle what they already have in stash; a playful way to be confident to explore creativity;
- Using 4 macro motifs as a template (2 to be knitted at each class section), the participants will be invited to approach colors, textures and fibers in a more freely way.
- The more wacky the yarn, the better!

 

Homework:

None

Supplies for Class:

A variety of yarns and leftovers from your own stash in different colors, fiber content, weight and textures; a range of knitting needles from your own stash that works with your yarn selection (suggestion from US 3 to US 10); stitch markers; paper and pencil for notes. A handout will be made available in the week of the event, please download it prior to class.
