Combine wool applique and embroidery with the hexi shape that has delighted quilters for generations and you have a quick portable project.  Multiple hexies can be sewn together to create mats, wall hangings or quilts, and the edges can be embellished like a crazy quilt.  While the principle for this project is quite simple, the possibilities are endless.  You can embroider on the hexies, add pieces cut from wool or cotton, and add beads and ribbons.  During class each student will make one hexi and will explore many other possibilities for embellishing hexies.  Techniques for joining hexies into a larger piece will also be demonstrated.

Additional kits will be available to purchase for $6 each.

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.

Wild Crafted Basketry:  Harvest Style Basket

Wild Crafted Basketry: Harvest Style Basket

Wild Crafted Basketry
from 75.00

9am-4pm

Saturday, February 16 | Harvest Style Basket with handle

Saturday, February 23 | Flat Bottom Basket

Sign up deadline: February 9

$75 per class or $130 for both

Teacher: Rebecca May Verrill

In this hands-on workshop we will explore an introduction to traditional basket weaving techniques with round, wild harvested, flexible fibers. In the first hour or so of the workshop we will travel to local low-lying areas and cut our own materials for immediate wet-weave use upon returning to Fiber & Vine.

Instructor will provide some pre-harvested materials; however, the nature of this project is for the maker to establish a connection with their own materials. Wonderful organic variations in size, color, texture and form will occur!


Students will be guided through an introduction to one specific style of harvest basket with a built-in handle (Feb. 16 only) -OR- a larger flat bottomed basket (Feb. 23 only.) Depending on size and ease of use with the materials, each student should be able to complete the bulk of the basket (and the knowledge of how to complete it afterward if time doesn’t allow) within the workshop.


Examples and stages of development, as well as different styles of baskets will be shared, as will many different resources to encourage and inspire future weaving projects. It is highly likely that participants will leave this workshop with a new way of seeing the landscape around them and never leave home without a pair of snippers in their backpack or glove box.

What to Bring: We will be spending the first hour or so of class outside, harvesting materials, so please dress accordingly! Bring small, hand-held pruners or garden shears, gloves and waterproof boots. Feel free to bring other shoes to change into during class. Adequate hand strength, creative openness and a positive attitude are the only other requirements.

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.

Signup deadline: March 30

$200 = $175 tuition + $25 materials to get you started (hand dyed silk fabric and merino wool) Some students may need/want more materials.

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 downtown for dinner at Norway Brewing Company!

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:

  • 3-4 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!!

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.

Why not arrive early and come to our free First Friday Wine tasting April 5, from 5-7pm? If you’re looking for a place to stay, check out some local accommodations below.
