Arts & DIY
Materials saved from the landfill:
t-shirts, bed sheets, scrap fibers
Skills you’ll learn:
knit stitch, casting on, binding off
Old scraps of fabric make the outside of this lovely floor pouf, while unwanted scraps of almost anything make up the inside! Learn the basics of knitting while you make a great floor pouf out of recycled fabric. The first part of this class introduces basic knitting skills like the knit stitch, casting on, and binding off. After two weeks participants will meet again to learn the unique skills to stuff and bind their poufs to finish their colorful creations. Participants will have some homework between classes. Class fee includes fabric and handmade knitting needles. You are welcome to bring in your own cotton bedsheets, t-shirts, or fabric scraps.
Please note, this two-day workshop takes place on Tuesday, January 24 + Tuesday, January 31 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.
All ages welcome
All materials provided. Class fee includes a set of handmade knitting needles to keep!
