Knitting Workshop: Beginner's Session with Ashwelle Fiberworks
Saturday January 13th from 12-3pm
Beginner Level Class - Must be 18 or older.
Ready to begin knitting? This is the perfect time to learn the basics!
This workshop will focus on creating simple garments with an emphasis on experimenting with yarn of different colors, textures, and fiber content to create a one of a kind garment.
This make & take class is for the complete beginner. Ashley will be teaching the group about the tools and fibers used in knitting, and how those tools are used to create fabrics of varying density. She will guide you through basic knitting techniques to create your very own scarf. Ashley has many tips & tricks including visual aids and simple rhymes to help students learn the ancient craft of knitting.
All materials will be provided - we'll have a variety of fibers and colors to choose from.
COVID-19 POLICY - We are asking all workshop participants to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative test result from within three days prior to the class and to accept all requests of both POST and the instructor concerning mask wearing.
About the instructor:
Ashley's love of knitting and fiber arts blossomed at the age of twelve and quickly became her passion. Her goal as a teacher of fiber arts is to cultivate a love of crafting in a way that inspires students to think creatively about the resources surrounding them and to fill the world with beauty while doing tasks that increase mindfulness and independent thinking. She also owns Ashwelle Fiber Works - a hand spun and hand dyed yarn business emphasizing the creation of unique small batch yarns made slowly, thoughtfully, and with respect to the materials used in the process.
