JC07 Landscape Bags With Harriet Boon

The pleasure of spinning can be enhanced by using color and creating a continuous yarn which when knit forms a landscape. This is color blending from a different perspective, and the end product is a small bag reflecting a favored picture. In this class we will create a small fulled wool knit bag reflecting your landscape image/picture. Designing a pictorial yarn is fun and challenging. Note: Knitting and fulling may not be completed within the day. Proficiency Level: Able to spin a continuous yarn and basic knitting skills. Bring to Class: Simple picture with strong horizontal lines, i.e., water, sky. Spindle or spinning wheel and all its parts. Extra bobbins. Hand cards or combs if you have them. Lazy kate. A range of knitting needles that you like to work with.

Class fee: $100.
Materials fee (payable to the instructor at the start of class): $12.
