Nordic Craft Workshop: Beginning Nålbinding with Melba Granlund

Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm

This class meets on Wednesday, September 4 and Thursday, September 5, from 1-5 pm each day

Learn the folk art tradition of nålbinding using a handcrafted wooden needle and a continuous strand of wool yarn. Often called “Viking knitting,” this looping technique predates both knitting and crocheting and was developed in multiple places around the world at least 3,000 years ago. Scandinavians long used wool yarn and nålbinding techniques to produce sturdy, warm garments such as socks, mittens and hats. In this class, you will continue in that Scandinavian tradition and learn basic nålbinding stitches to get started on a hat. Your instructor will provide practice yarn and a wooden needle to introduce a new hobby that will keep your hands busy for the rest of the winter!

An additional $15 materials fee is payable to the instructor. Students are also responsible for sourcing one skein of yarn for their hat project.

Registration recommended by August 28.
