 with Venessa Bentley of Working Hands Fibre Arts Studio 

Sunday, 12 noon - 5 pm - date TBC, please email for info


Would you like to spend an afternoon knitting Christmas Balls, Arne and Carlos style? This has been a Working Hands Fibre Arts tradition for several holiday seasons. This year the program will be offered here at the shop and we would love it if you would join us.

Instruction will be provided on the best ways to knit in the round, on wooden double points, working stranded colour work, in the designs of your choice. There are 55 to choose from! 

You will need the book and non-superwash sport weight wool, plus 3 mm to 3.5 mm needles depending on your tension. These balls are meant to be knit and stuffed very firm. Wool batting will be provided for the stuffing. 

We are recommending Cascade 220 or Sandnes Peer Gynt yarn and wooden/bamboo double pointed needles. 

Please drop by the shop before the class and we'll be happy to help you find your yarn and needles. 

We are so excited to get the festive season off to a colourful start!
