John Mullarkey / Franklin Habit Workshop July 21 (all day) - Beautiful on Both Sides: Weaving and Embroidering a Reversible Stole
Saturday July 21, 9am - noon, 1pm - 4pm
The Lucretia Stole brings together the arts of weaving and reversible embroidery at a level designed to delight beginners and intermediate students alike. In this full-day workshop, designers Franklin Habit and John Mullarkey will guide you through all the necessary steps. You’ll weave and join plain and patterned elements of the center on a Schacht Zoom Loom; then work the bold two-sided embroidery that makes Lucretia a piece you’ll be proud to wear. Please note: Students will not complete the stole in class, but will receive instruction and practice in all techniques required to make it.
Workshop Fee: $120
Skill Level: No prior knowledge of weaving or embroidery is required. However, students should be willing to learn to work from embroidery charts.
Student Supplies: You will need a zoom loom or other 4" square pin loom. For weaving and joining, one ball or wound skein of smooth, non-fuzzy heavy fingering or light DK yarn in white or a light solid or semi-solid color; natural fibers (or predominantly natural blends) are preferred. (One full skein will suffice for class; to complete the full stole, you will need approximately 1400 yds of your weaving yarn of choice.) For embroidery, one ball or wound skein of smooth, non-fuzzy yarn in the same weight as your weaving yarn, in a solid or semisolid color that contrasts well with the weaving yarn. Avoid yarns that are unplied, softly spun, or that pill/abrade easily.
Scissors. Blunt tapestry needle for embroidery (bent tip needles are fine). Notebook, and pen or pencil for taking notes..
