Blocking Demo

Date(s): October 6th, 2016, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Can’t quite figure out blocking, or want to get a sneak preview of blocking wires in action? Join Donna and learn the ins and outs of blocking your hand knits! As this workshop demo is only an hour long, we will only have time to block the designated shop projects. This event is free, but participants are encouraged to reserve a spot in advance.

Natural Dyeing

Date(s): Saturday, November 26 from 12-4pm
Learn to dye with natural materials in this beginner dyeing class. We will use extracts and locally sourced dye materials to produce a range of colours. We will also discuss mordanting, safe practices and sustainable havesting.  By the end of the class you will have sample skeins of dyed yarn and inspiration for further exploration!
