Curious about methods to fix knit fabric? Intrigued by visible mending? Interested in adding embroidery and duplicate stitch to knit fabric? In this workshop, you’ll learn all these skills.
We’ll start with an overview of mending techniques, including darning and patching. Then, we’ll cover a few simple ways to add both strength and beauty to fabric, including satin stitch and duplicate stitch.
You can apply what you learn many types of fabrics, not just handknits!
Ann will provide everything you need!
Ann will supply everyone with:
- a large square piece of knitting to practice on (from her extensive collection of thrifted wool sweaters),
- embellishment yarns and
- her favorite mending tools
If you have a piece you’d like to work on, feel free to bring it to class.
None! Bring your questions and ideas!
Since 1971, we have sponsored workshops to give students the opportunity to study with exceptional instructors in the relaxed atmosphere of this unique village. Our workshops are held on the second floor of the Bethuel Harris Mill which sits at the end of the canal overlooking the mill pond and originally operated on water-power. This beautiful brick building was built in the 1830’s as a spinning mill for locally raised wools and it now houses our retail shop on the first floor and provides excellent studio space for our students on the second floor. It is relished for its sunlit windows, fresh air and tranquility. In order to create the atmosphere of a working studio rather than a classroom, we limit enrollment in our workshops. Most classes meet daily from 9 am to 4 pm; however, the studio is open to students 24 hours a day while class is in session. During the 5 day classes, students will have the opportunity to tour our spinning mill and listen to a talk on the history of Harrisville. Yarn and other materials for the workshops are usually included in the tuition unless otherwise noted.
Withdrawal/Refund Policy: Tuition includes a non-refundable $50.00 registration fee for each workshop. Students who must withdraw have 5 weeks prior to class for a full tuition refund less the registration fee. After this date all payments are non-refundable.
