Before there was knitting, before crochet, there were many fascinating fiber crafts that our ancestors used for function and beauty. Although often left behind for more practical techniques, these fiber crafts still hold an important place in our culture and heritage and can create unique cloth that no modern technique can rival. Over eight weeks you will learn about three ancient fiber techniques and how to create a simple project in each.
See below for the crafts covered in this class.
All tools needed for the techniques will be provided. You can choose the class only option when signing up and use the tools on loan for the duration of the class, or you can choose the class plus tools option and purchase all the tools needed for the class. Basic yarns suited to each technique will be provided, students are welcome to bring their own yarn as well.

I'm so excited to be sharing my craft knowledge in this class. I had envisioned this class a while back as I began sharing my love for ancient fiber arts and found so many other crafters were fascinated by these 'lost arts'. While the internet has become a wonderful place for sharing knowledge, some skills are just better learned in person.
My background of fiber arts began as a teenager learning crochet while being homeschooled, living off grid in the redwoods. Over time I have gathered knowledge and love of many fiber arts from weaving and braiding to lace making and basketry.
