Introduction to Net Making - SOLD OUT
Limited Capacity seats available

Net making is a fun and versatile craft, the basics of which can be grasped quickly. Using the same set of techniques, you can make a functional bag, a decorative shawl, scarf, or even a hammock. Nets can be faster to make and use less material than knitting, so can make great quick projects to use up leftovers from your stash. 

This workshop will cover the basic net making knots to work both flat and in the round. By learning increases and decreases you will begin to understand how to shape your nets into a variety of forms. 

You will leave the workshop with a completed mesh bag, the beginning of a scarf, the tools you need to continue, and a few additional patterns to try at home. All materials provided, but feel free to bring some of your own yarn (worsted weight or thinner), string, or cord. 

No experience required.
