To say that Abbey Caldwell is obsessed with knitting would be putting it mildly and she LOVES to pass her passion of all things wooly on to others. Abbey is very excited to be teaching kid and teen knitting classes of all levels at the Studio. Her work can also be seen in Contempo Artisan Boutique! Abbey has a lot of energy and can’t wait to start molding young knitters. SO let’s get those needles clackin’!
CHECK OUT UPCOMING CLASSES:
Exploring Felting for Adults:
There is so much more you can do with wool besides knitting and crocheting! Join this class as we explore two forms of felting. The first form we will explore is needle felting where the students will use roving (wool not spun into yarn) and cookie cutters to create little felted shapes that can be made into Christmas ornaments, pins, earrings,pendants or hair pieces. The second half of the class we will be learning to do a form of wet felting by making felted soap using a bar of soap and some roving. No need for a wash cloth or sponge, with felted soap it’s built right into your soap!
COST: $50…all supplies included
