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: This club is full, if you’d like to be added to the waitlist or hear about future opportunities, email Jessy Brainerd.

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