Tales of apocalypse rivet our imagination. We wonder not only how survivors would recreate society, but also about day-to-day practical survival in a world of disrupted supply chains. This class taps into that vein of interest by teaching fiber techniques with upcycled or ordinary household materials as inputs and useful objects as outputs.

I will provide tools, supplies and beginning instruction on basket coiling, pin loom weaving, and felting.  Our goal is the satisfaction of handcrafting practical things, rather than prepping for a real-life apocalypse.

Materials provided (but if you sign up in advance you will get suggestions of things on hand that you might want to bring and transform).
