Night Classes at the Wab

There are still spots open in our upcoming Wednesday night Zentangle class, taught by visiting instructor and artist Nysha Oren Nelson. Zentangle is a simple and meditative method of creating pattern with basic pen marks on paper. It can be used to increase focus and confidence while creating beautiful and intricate patterns easily! The technique can be used in embroidery and other fibre arts. For more information and registration, click here.

 

We’ve still got a few spots left in October’s Friday night Knit Project Class. Bring a knitting project you’ve always wanted to make, and let our knit-genius help you navigate the pattern! The class functions like a group private lesson, with each student working on their own project. Basic knitting experience is required.

Lopi Love

It’s all about the love, baby. Lopi love, that is. Remember it’s going to be cold out there soon and you’re going to want to keep warm. And who knows more about keeping warm than Icelanders. So this winter, keep the cold out by knitting the lop up.
