Textile Arts: Knitting with Beads
Saturday, April 22nd | 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Learn how beads can add color and sparkle to your knitting while busting some stash at the same time! Kelly Forster will teach you how easy and rewarding it is to incorporate beads into your knitted projects with a simple knitted bracelet. Students will learn how to place beads using a crochet hook as well as how to make additional charms to embellish the finished bracelets.
Kits will be available for purchase for $20.00 each and will include everything you need to make a bracelet (yarn, pattern, button, beads, crochet hook, and findings). A materials list will be sent to all students prior to the class. Kelly Forster is a knitting designer and teacher. She first picked up a pair of knitting needles nearly 11 years ago and hasn’t been able to put them down since! She receives a regular dose of color and inspiration at her yarn shop where she works and teaches.
