One of the things we promised to do in 2015 was offer more educational classes in a variety of great crafts and skills. So here we go! Here are some brand new offerings for April. Space is limited for each class, so please contact me (Beth) at 207-890-8490 or at ParrisHouseWoolWorks@gmail.com to sign up!

Tuesday, April 14th – PENNY RUG/APPLIQUE WITH FIBER ARTIST MARY DELANO
9:30 am – 3:30 pm. Join us for a wonderful penny rug/applique class with fiber artist Mary DeLano (see her artist profile here: https://fibercollege.wordpress.com/2014/07/08/artist-profile-mary-delano/).
Mary goes beyond the blanket stitch in this class suitable for beginners and also those who want to learn new stitches and techniques for penny rug making. Mary will provide her expertise, embroidery floss, ribbon, and other notions as well as some wool materials. Students need to bring the wool for the background and any scrap wool they might like to incorporate in to their design, and a pair of scissors. We also have plenty of wools and scraps at the Maine studio to choose from.
Class is $45. Please RSVP to secure your spot!
Saturday, April 18th – INTRODUCTION TO WOOL DYEING WITH BETH MILLER
9 am to 12 noon. We will introduce pot dyeing, microwave dyeing, and casserole dyeing in colors of your choice, and maybe make new recipes with experimentation! Class including materials, $32. Space is limited to four students. This one is almost full right now, so don’t hesitate!
I will continue to post class offerings here, but you can also always go to our Workshops & Classes tab to see what’s scheduled for the year. Hope to see many of you in the studio!
Happy hooking! – Beth
