Swedish Spoon Carving with Ian Trundy
from 55.00

Saturday, September 29 | 10am-3pm

(Signup Deadline: September 22)

$90 = $55 Tuition + $35 for knives

Teacher: Ian Trudy

This class is FULL! We are working to add a second class sometime soon, so if you'd like to learn this awesome skill, call or email us to be put on the list for the next class!

Welcome to the wonderful world of slöjd!

Learn the fundamentals of carving creative and unique spoons that are sure to be cherished by all who use them. Class will cover material selection and wood related considerations, safety, tools and sharpening, techniques and tricks, and finishing. In short, you should leave with everything you need to know to start your own creative journey.

There is a class materials fee of $35 to cover a hook knife and a straight slöjd knife for students and all other materials, wood, and sharpening equipment will be provided. However, if students prefer to purchase their own straight slöjd knife and hook knife the fee shall be waived. I personally suggest looking at Morakniv or Beavercraft knives, both found on Amazon.com. These make good beginner knives and aren’t too expensive. Both are pictured.

For $15 a catered lunch by Cafe Nomad will be provided, payable on the day of class. This includes a sandwich, chips, pickle and a cookie. We will have a variety of beverages to choose from as well. Please specify your food preferences during the next step.

Nuno Felted Scarf

Nuno Felt Scarf Class

Thursday/Friday, October 4 & 5 | 10am-5pm

Signup deadline: September 30

$150 = $125 tuition + $25 materials to get you started (hand dyed silk fabric and merino wool)

Teacher: Kim Hamlin

————————————————————

Get ready to play and have fun with fiber! In this two day class, you will learn the basic techniques of nuno felting to make a one of a kind, reversible scarf. The end result is a soft, yet strong, material with unique texture and shine.

Day 1: Pick from our selection of hand dyed silk fabrics and wool roving to create a color palate for your scarf. We will then spend the rest of the day making a few test swatches to see how our colors and materials work/look together. The final step of the day will be to calculate our shrinkage and begin designing our scarves.

Day 2: Will involve laying out our fibers, wetting down, rolling and shrinking and then finally admiring our work. Once finished, we can walk upstairs to enjoy a free, first Friday wine tasting!

**All students are invited to attend our Felting Open Studio, Saturday October 6 from 10-5pm at no charge. Keep working or start something new!

Class Materials

We will provide up to 2oz hand dyed merino wool, several pieces of hand dyed silk as well as the tools required for felting: 2 pool noodles, bubble wrap, tulle or netting, olive oil soap and a ball brause. We will have additional materials for sale in case anyone needs or wants more to complete their project. If you’d like to bring some of your own materials, please contact us first to make sure it will work! This is also what test swatches are for!

PLEASE BRING:

  • 2-4 large bath towels (not your best guest towels, colors from the wool and silk may run and stain)

  • Small hand towel

  • Small plastic tub for water, like a dish tub or mop bucket.

  • Fabric scissors

  • Tape measure

  • Duct Tape

  • Notebook and pencil/pen

  • Apron (If you’d like)

  • Lunch and snacks!!

  • Something to carry your wet towels home in.

Wet felting is a physical process with a lot of standing. Wear comfy clothes, shoes and bring layers to wear.

Each day there will be a short break for lunch. You can bring your own food or visit one of the many restaurants nearby. We also have a fridge and microwave in the shop you are welcome to use.
