For those of you who are in Calgary, I’ll be teaching my naalbinding class at the SCA May Tavern on May 25, 2016.
You do NOT need to be a member of the SCA to attend tavern, and if it’s your first tavern, it’s free! (If it’s not, it’s only $3 to attend).
Information about the class:
Introduction to nålbinding
A textile technique which pre-dates knitting, with examples from Egypt to Scandinavia, this class will introduce the Oslo stitch. Attendees should have time to finish a small project or start a larger one in class. No knitting/crochet experience necessary!
Cost: Free with your own supplies
Supplies needed: large-eye blunt tapestry needle (Children’s plastic canvas needles work, as would a wood/bone/horn needle for nålbinding). 100% wool yarn, bulky weight. Scissors or snips. (I’ll have some supplies available to borrow, but if you have your own, you can continue your project after the class!)
Also recommended: notebook & pencil for taking notes
No hand out provided.
