Please note, this two-day workshop takes place on Tuesdays, March 30 and April 6 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm each session.
Old scraps of fabric make the outside of this lovely floor pouf, while unwanted scraps of almost anything make up the inside! Learn the basics of knitting while you make a great floor pouf out of recycled fabric. The first part of this class introduces basic knitting skills like the knit stitch, casting on, and binding off. During the second session, participants will learn the unique skills to stuff and bind their poufs to finish their colorful creations. Participants will have some homework between classes. Class fee includes fabric and handmade knitting needles. You are welcome to use your own cotton bedsheets, t-shirts, or fabric scraps.
This is a virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom. Participants will be emailed information about how to participate prior to the class. You may pickup kits containing handmade knitting needles, cut balls of bed sheet yarn, and extra fabric on Tuesday, March 30 from 3-5pm, or email email@example.com to arrange another time.
