Project Planning for Fiber and Handweaving

June 21

PROJECT PLANNING FOR FIBER AND HANDWEAVING

How do you estimate how much yarn you need for a project? How do you calculate for multiple projects? Where do you start when you’re not sure where to start? Too many ideas? Not enough? In this class we will explore answers to these questions. We will talk about how to plan for a project and where to get project ideas from. We will explore how to modify patterns and make them more your own as well. This is a fun, one day class and you will leave with fresh ideas and starting points for your next project. Instructor: Deanna Lynch.
