Description

Come learn how to create small forms or surface designs using the simple technique of knot-less netting. During our time together, you'll have a few choices over which form you wish to add to or create using the technique known as "looping" or "knot-less netting". Cover a small gourd or a large bead or rock, and learn how to use a mold to make a small open looped pouch. This technique has endless uses for either building a form or embellishing another item or piece of fiber art. Waxed linen and cotton cord in different colors will be provided, along with a choice of forms for covering or to use as a removable mold. You'll experiment with varying tensions to provide different impact using just one stitch. Depending on the tension and tightness of your looping, you will be able to finish at least one of the forms we're learning on.
