Description

Knitting: Socks 101 (Intermediate Level)
Date: April 17 - May 1, 2018 (Tuesdays, 3 weeks)
Time: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Instructor: Tamsin Sloots
Fee: $45 plus HST (Members) | Fee: $52 plus HST (Non Members)

This three part class will walk you through the process of making your first pair of knitted socks! Over the three weeks, you will learn how to knit in the round using double pointed needles, how to turn your heel and pick up stitches for the gusset, and how to decrease and graft the toes of your sock. You will leave the class with the confidence to continue knitting socks! Because this is a intermediate class, students must know both the knit and purl stitches and be fairly confident using them to register for Sock 101.

Tamsin Sloots is a maker of prints and textile objects originally hailing from Hamilton, Ontario. She has a diploma in textiles from Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario and a BFA Interdisciplinary from NSCAD University in Textiles and Printmaking. Tamsin is currently working out of the Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design as an artist in residence for 2017-2018 where you can likely find her quilting up a storm or elbow deep in a vat of indigo. She thoroughly enjoys spreading her love of craft to people and experiencing the community and practicality found through making and creating. You can learn more about her by visiting her website: tamsinjohanna.com
