Post-Apocalypse Fiber Arts

Thursday, February 1, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Enrollment: Advance sign-up preferred but not required
Sign-up by 01/31
Limited to 20 participants

Tales of apocalypse rivet our imagination. We wonder not only how survivors would recreate society, but also about day-to-day practical survival in a world of disrupted supply chains. This class taps into that vein of interest by teaching fiber techniques with upcycled or ordinary household materials as inputs and useful objects as outputs.

I will provide tools, supplies and beginning instruction on basket coiling, pin loom weaving, and felting.  Our goal is the satisfaction of handcrafting practical things, rather than prepping for a real-life apocalypse.

Materials provided (but if you sign up in advance you will get suggestions of things on hand that you might want to bring and transform).
