Sheep to Shawl

Loading Events
This event has passed.

This course offers an opportunity to create a special garment by transforming wool fibers into a knitted shawl. Over the course of 10 Saturdays from January to December, each participant will create a beautiful and functional piece that is imbued with healing forces and uniquely suited to his or her individuality.

The traditional hands-on activities of washing and carding wool, spinning with the spindle and the wheel, dyeing fibers with plant-colors and knitting will be approached with a spirit of research and renewal. Background reading, presentations and conversations will complement the hands-on activities. Regular practice and study – in addition to the work in class – is recommended and will amplify the experience of this year-long journey.

Each Saturday art and/or movement classes accompany the handwork sessions and bring enlivening impulses to each individual as well as the group.

This course is open to beginners and experienced fiber artisans.
