Knit and Crochet Day!
Tuesday, March 12 from 11 am to 6 pm (drop-in hours)
Join us for SCRAP's first Knit & Crochet Day!
All levels and beginners welcome, any age, anyone! Learn the basics or work on a project. $15 gets you a seat at the table with our instructors and two skeins of beautiful hand-dyed golden alpaca and wool blend yarn.
Stay as little or as long as you'd like. Row and Hannah will be around to check your progress, help with a difficult stitch, or just compliment your lovely projects!
If you would like to simply come and work on a knitting or crochet project without purchasing a ticket, please do! However, space is limited so first come, first serve.
Beginning Head and Figure Drawing
Saturday, February 23rd, 2019
1pm - 4pm
Led by artist David Tenorio, this Drawing workshop will teach you the fundamentals of drawing, tips for drawing the head/portrait and how to improve your observational abilities.
This 3 hour workshop will cover such topics as:
- Basic foundational drawing skills
- Tips and tricks for each feature of the head
- How do we observe quickly? Seeing what's most important
- The correct way to construct the head using the "Ball and Jaw" method
- Simple to advanced techniques for shading in pencil and ink
For both beginners and seasoned veterans, this workshop will provide instruction that spans all abilities and skill levels. The workshop will begin with a detailed lecture covering basic foundational drawing skills (with some advanced techniques included!) followed by a series of exercises and demonstrations on drawing the head, concluding with a Q&A segment at the end of the session. Each workshop participant will receive drawing materials to work with as well as a custom-made packet covering all instructed material.
Ribbon Weaving with Alex Byrne!
Saturday, February 2nd, 2019
11 AM – 4 PM
This 5-hour workshop will introduce you to weaving ribbons and fabrics into textile pieces that you can use in your other projects or keep as art in their own right. We will start with a simple ‘plain weave’ (pictured below right, made into a purse) and those that feel confident can then go on to try a more complicated ‘triaxial weave’ (also known as ‘mad weaving’, pictured above right) which results in a star or tumbling blocks pattern.
To enjoy this workshop you will need to be comfortable manipulating fabric and ribbon with your hands and using pins on cardboard. By the time we finish you will have at least one letter-sized finished piece to take home!
Ribbons and fabric will be supplied but if you wish to bring any favorites from home please feel free. Fabric should be pre-cut into approximately 1 inch wide strips to save time. Bias binding and trims can also be used.
This workshop is for everyone 15 years and older.
