4-H Youth and adults on zoom show off their weaving projects.

Who: Youth ages 9 & up

When: October 24, and 26; November 2, 14 & 16; 4:00 – 5:00 pm

Registration ends: October 16, 2023

Where: University of Maine Cooperative Extension will host the meetings via Zoom

What: Calling all creative youth ages 9 & up! You are likely familiar with crochet or knitting – but have you ever thought about weaving? In this SPIN club, we will cover the basics – from understanding the mechanics of simple knitting – to investigating different types of fiber to know why you might choose to use wool rather than cotton.  This will be a VERY hands-on club – we will provide all of the necessary tools and materials to everyone attending – and club members will have the opportunity to work on a traditional tapestry loom and experiment with circular weaving!

Why: To learn something new and have a good time!

How: Register Now

This club is limited to 10 participants. Materials will be mailed prior to the first session.
