WOOL ART - Yarn and Stitch

Creating with Wool Cloth and Yarns/Threads

Two-day workshop with Bethany Garner: March 28 + 29, 5-9PM daily

Starting with beautiful, soft New England Dorr Wool as the base cloth for lovely hand stitched pieces of original art, Bethany spends time in her studio at the Tett Centre developing plans for taking the cloth to all new designs... with just the needles, threads and scissors as her design tools.

Making cloth art and using favourite cotton or wool threads and yarns, often from her stash of weaving project yarns or handspun wool by local friends, Beth begins the design play with a few favourite, easy to learn stitch patterns: french knots, lines and crosses, circles created with blanket stitch and often, just running stitch!

In this workshop, students will receive a rectangular piece of either black or white wool cloth and have a chance to try a few basic stitch repeated patterns on their cloth that will begin a journey to filling their cloth with their own pattern designs. A comprehensive handout will be included in the workshop, and with two evenings in a row to learn, practice and enjoy creating.

Please note: The Tett does not have a mask mandate, however, you are welcome and encouraged to wear a mask while in close quarters.

 This workshop is open to students 18+ years and older. All levels of ability (beginner, intermediate and advanced students) welcome.
