Location: West Church Hall (upstairs but a lift is available)

Day: Saturday 14th March

Time: 9.30 – 12.30 p.m.

Cost: £25

Skills: Suitable for beginners

Skill Focus: Needle-felt techniques to create a 2D picture; processing the needle-felt into a greetings card.

2D needle felting is an easily mastered, simple technique that enables you to make beautiful and imaginative pictures from unspun wool applied to fabric. These versatile pieces can then be framed, or used to embellish clothes, soft furnishings and bags. In this class you will learn how to turn your picture into a greetings card. For this basic session we will be using a chunky needle felting tool that may be manageable for those whose fingers no longer do what they used to!
If you have a picture of a landscape or seascape that you would like to reproduce bring it along.

All materials are included in the cost and the tools may be purchased at the end.

Tutor: Tooty MacKenzie

Location: Social Club Struie Room

Sunday 15th March 2020

10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Skills: Suitable for beginners

Skill Focus: Circular knitting, turning a heel, using elastic in knitting.

Cost: £40.00

In this class you will learn how to knit a trainer/ankle sock in cotton/polyamide. You will be using circular needles rather than the usual double pointed needles, and because it is a short sock you will quickly get to turn the heel!

You will also learn to knit with elastic to create a snug rib. Materials supplied include a ball of Regia cotton/polyamide yarn, knitting elastic and 2 buttons.

Please bring stitch markers, tape measure, scissors and 2 sets of 3mm x 40cm circular needles (available to purchase on the day if necessary).
