SOLD OUT Nordic Handcraft Workshop: Beginning Nålbinding

Sunday, January 5, 2020 - 1:00pm

This class meets Sundays January 5, 12 & 19 from 1-4 p.m. each day

Learn the folk art tradition of nålbinding using a handcrafted wooden needle and 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 begin a hat. Your instructor will provide practice yarn and a wooden needle to get you started with a new hobby that will keep your hands busy for the rest of the winter!

This class is scheduled over three weeks to reinforce learning a new type of handwork. Prior to the class, students will receive guidelines for acquiring yarn of their choice for their hat project.

An additional $15 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
