Riverhouse Art Scarves – New 5 Week Course February 2016

I’m excited to announce my new 5 week course at the Riverhouse Arts Centre in Walton-on-Thames.

For this project you will create a piece of art that can be worn as a scarf as well as being beautiful enough to be displayed in a gallery!
Using small and simple motifs such as circles, squares or hexagons you will create a scarf or wrap using hand-dyed yarn by British independent dyers.
The course will cover making motifs, joining motifs as you go and working out how much yarn you’ll need or what size scarf you can make with the yarn you have.
Your tutor will  guide you through making your own, unique scarf that you can put up for sale at the exhibition, if you can bear parting with it!

As with all the Rivehouse Hookers’ courses, you’ll have class notes and printed tutorials to keep.

Skill level: 
You’ll need basic crochet skills such as chaining, US single/UK double, US double/UK treble, slip stitching.

Materials (not included): 
Hand-dyed 4ply / sock yarn (I’ll post soon with a list of suggested suppliers), minimum of 2 colours (2 x 100g) but the more you have the better the effect!
2.5mm hook
tapestry/wool needle
