Cost:    Supply Fee is $8.

Instructor:  Crystal Kitchens.

Maximum number of students:  12.

Open to adults and youth ages 14 and up.

 

In this workshop, you’ll make a round basket.  You’ll learn how to handle basket reed, how to start a round basket, and how to shape a basket.  The finished baskets will be about 6 inches tall with a 5-inch diameter base.  You can use colored reed and beads to decorate your baskets.  No basket making experience is required.

If you’ve already woven a round basket, you’ll have the option of weaving a double wall basket or weaving a basket over a quart jar (bring your own jar).

If there is time, you can weave another basket, starting with a wooden base.  Basket making is wet work, so wear old clothes and bring a towel.  The instructor will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.

Date:   Friday August 23, 2013

Time:   9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Cost:   Supply Fee - all supplies are $5, or mandril and crochet hook are $2.25, or mandril alone is $ .75, or crochet hook alone is $1.50.

Maximum number of students:  12.

Open to adults and youth ages 14 and up.

 

Learn a couple of crochet stitches and you’ll soon be making “peacock eye” lace.  Broomstick lace can be used to make all sorts of lacy items from afghans to scarfs to shawls.  Broomstick lace allows you to make larger items faster because the loops take up a lot of space.  Previous crochet experience is not required.

Learn some crochet stitches (chain, single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet and slip stitch) and how to read crochet patterns in the first part of the class.  Learn how to make broomstick lace in the second part of the class.

Students may provide their own supplies.  Students need a mandril which can be a large knitting needle or a dowel, around 10 to 12 inches long and between 3/4 and 1 inch in diameter with a short but defined point; either worsted weight yarn and a size G or H crochet hook, or sports weight yarn and a size E or F crochet hook; and scissors.  Please do not bring any of the eyelash, ribbon, fuzzy or “homespun” yarns for the first project.
