July 25th (Sat, 9-4)

using Knitting, Crochet and Macrame
 
In this class, we will make a wooly wall hanging that blurs the line between the fiber arts.  If you enjoy lace knitting but are intimidated by tiny needles and fine lace yarn, in this class we will learn intermediate lace knitting skills using bulky yarn and larger needles. We will attach the knitting to a macrame hoop using crochet techniques and attach the fringe with macrame knots. The result will be a modern macrame-style wall hanging that you can proudly display in your home and make as gifts.  
 
Students will receive a class curriculum. We will refer back to the curriculum throughout the class to ensure we meet the expectations set below. Students will learn:  
 
● The German Twisted Cast-On ● Which increase and decrease to use and why ● How to strategically place increases and decreases to shape fabric ● How to mirror lace for symmetry ● Contrast and compare several lace patterns to determine how each is constructed  ● How to attach the knitting to the hoop using a basic crochet stitch ● How to make basic macrame knots
 
If time allows, students will also learn: ● How to wet splice natural yarns to join a new ball ● How to invisibly join a new ball of yarn when using synthetic fibers
 
TECHNIQUE REQUIREMENTS / CLASS LEVEL Students must know how to knit / purl, cast on, and bind off. Intermediate knitting. Absolute beginners welcome for macrame and crochet.

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.
