Bethany Homecrafts Spring Fiber Class Offerings

Make a Needle Felted Gnome Thursday, April 16, 6-9 pm

In this 3 hour class you will learn the techniques of building a figure, applying color, and building a face. You can bring your own fiber, needles and felting pad, or buy the fiber and felting kit from me.

Felting Kit: $7
RSVP by April 7 (sorry for short notice!)

Beginner’s Hand Spinning With a Drop Spindle Thursday, May 7, 7-8:30 pm
In this class we will play with fiber, talk about the history of spinning, and begin to make yarn. You will need a bottom-whorl drop spindle. The two links below can help you with that: the first instructs how to make your own, the second is a link to a site that sells them. I have the spindle from that page that has the cut-out hearts, and it works quite nicely.
Class fee: $8
Materials fee: $8
RSVP by April 23

Beginner’s Wet Felting Thursday, May 14, 7-9 pm
This class will be a festival of color and texture. We will play with several shapes of felted wool: a ball, buttons, a snake, and felted soap. Limited to 4 students due to space limitations.
Class fee: $10
Materials fee: $8
RSVP by April 30

Rug Braiding Basics Saturday, May 23, 1:30-4:30 pm

In this class you will learn the basics of making a braided rug, from preparation of your fabric to finishing off your piece. If you are interested in this class, contact me by April 24, as there will be prep work for you to do before the class.
If you have a rotary cutter, with cutting mat and quilter’s rule, that makes the work a lot easier, but it’s not necessary.
Class fee: $15
Materials fee: $5
RSVP by April 24

All classes will be held at my home in Bristol.
