Introduction to Coiled Vessels VIA ZOOM!

Join us in learning the basics of the coiling technique to weave a small to medium size vessel.  The class will include how to start the center, splicing, design, shaping, and how to end the vessel smoothly.  

Please plan on approximately 10 - 12 hours spent working on your vessel between the 2 sessions.  

Materials included in your class fee - these will be shipped to you 10 days prior to class beginning. 
10 yards of 8/32 Fiberflex Core  
Instructional handout

Materials list - please gather these supplies prior to class and bring them with you!

Glue - suggested is Aleene's original Tacky Glue.  You can buy it at Target, JoAnne's, Michael's, McGuckins.
Scissors - largish and sharp 
2 colors of worsted wt wool yarn, at least 2 ply - (2-ply is best because of strength.  More than 2-ply gets a little bulky and hard to make smooth stitches)
