Children’s Summer Knitting/Fiber Arts Workshops

Summer of 2012 will be the second year of offering week-long knitting/fiber arts workshops for children.  We meet for 3 hours a day; during that time kids learn to knit or advance their current knitting skills.  A new knitter might make a simple change purse or beanbag.  The more advanced knitter might make a lace hat or beaded knit handbag.  The setting is a relaxed one, allowing kids to advance at their own pace.  There will be many projects to choose from.  In addition to knitting, we will be needle-felting, dyeing yarn using kool-aid, and making fused glass buttons.

The perfect ages for this workshop are 7-14 year olds.  I am considering a teen-specific workshop.  If you’re interested, please let me know!

Everyone will go home with at least a couple of finished projects.  You can see photos of some projects the kids made last year below.  For more information, go to www.knitsandthat.com and choose “Classes”.





One thought on “Children’s Summer Knitting/Fiber Arts Workshops

  1. YES!!! My sentiments etacxly. While I am actively in love with several lace projects, the chances of my knitting them are slim since I would never wear or use them. Still, I file them away in my dream knitting since I’d like to have a go someday.
