Unwind With Wool
With Melissa Spratt
This mindful and relaxing 2 hour workshop, “Unwind with Wool” will teach you how to transform the fun, easy and therapeutic technique of finger knitting into a beautifully crafted sculptural artwork, ready to adorn your walls.
Each participant will choose a selection of different coloured and textured wools and one of three unique round patterns, or the more adventurous can work intuitively creating their own pattern. The finger knitted yarn will then be set in place onto the felt backing with a hot glue, to create flowing and organic patterns. Once complete, the piece will be finished with a secure hanging hook, making it ready for your wall.
All materials and light refreshments will be provided.
