Single Color Brioche

Date: Sunday Feb. 23, 2020

Time: 1:30-4

Instructor: Nancy Vandivert

Fee: $45 (payable to Tina Turner Knits)

Brioche knitting produces a two-sided fabric that is soft and flexible. It is often worked with fine yarns on needles larger than would typically be used. To create the two sides, two rows are worked for each counted row that appears on the face of the fabric. Half of the stitches are worked in one row and the other half are then worked in the following row.

Prerequisites:

Students should know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.

Materials:

50 yards yarn in any weight; appropriate size needles for the yarn suitable for working flat; scissors, tapestry needle.


Felted Vessels

Date: Sunday Feb. 23. 2020

Time: 1:00-4:00

Instructor: Marcia Weinert

Fee: $45 (payable to Tina Turner Knits)

It is both magical and easy to use unspun wool to fashion a 3-dimensional purse, pouch or other vessel around a flat form that “resists” felting and shrinking! We’ll play with a mountainous rainbow of fluff and sparkle to make unique, small bowls—and discuss how these same techniques can be used to develop into hats, handbags, and vases!

Materials fee:
payable to the instructor in class
$5 for fibers and handouts
