The Taos Wool Festival is always the first full weekend of October, with workshops starting a couple of days ahead. This is a great time to be in the mountains of New Mexico. The autumn colors and crisp weather are just wonderful.
This year I’m offering three classes at Taos:
Polymer Clay Button Boutique, all day Friday, October 3. You’ll go home with lots of colorful, pretty buttons, ready to use. They’re machine washable and dryable.
See the blue and orange buttons in the lower right corner of the photo above? We’ll make those as a group project. So fun!
How to Knit Mosaic Patterns and Design Your Own, Saturday afternoon, October 4. After this class, you’ll be able to knit any of Barbara Walker’s many mosaic patterns, and you can design your own! Read more about the workshop here.
This mosaic cactus motif is one of my earliest original mosaic designs. I still like it a lot!
Cables, Bobbles, and Braids, Sunday morning, October 5. You’ll learn how to do these stunning knitting techniques, but more importantly, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of these textural wonders. You’ll go away ready to twist and shout!
Please sign up for classes before September 1, 2014, at www.taoswoolfestival.org/workshops.
This notice is also on my other blog, but with different pictures. Enjoy!
