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”.
