Create a cozy triangle scarf to ward off the chill on those long winter nights! Artist Crystal Kitchens is back in Madison with another fabulous class using the traditional technique of hand weaving. This triangle loom technique is like "magic" and require no previous experience. With just one stroke, you make the warp and weave the weft.
First-time weavers will learn to make a triangle loom in various sizes, weave with continuous thread, and finish and join the triangles. Repeat weavers have a few options: weave patterns, experiment with colors for plaids or weave with cut thread in the log cabin pattern.
Tap into your hidden personal talent under the instruction of artist Crystal Kitchens to make a round basket! Learn the necessary skill to handle basket reed, start a round basket and shape it into your personal handmade creation. The finished basket is approximately 6 inches tall with a 5-inch diameter base. Colored reeds and beads provide personal flair for those wanting to express themselves. A second basket can be started if time allows.
This workshop is for beginners. No experience is required. Basket making is wet work, so wear old clothes and bring a towel. All tools and other supplies are provided.
Decorate your own mini pumpkin! We'll provide the glitter, markers, jewels, etc. Bring your creativity and join the fun! All kids grades K-5 and their caregivers are welcome. Contact Ms. Freda Miguel, 256.859.9050, for more information. Read more about PUMPKIN PARTY!!!
