PAM DE GROOT
Pam De Groot comes from a background of Studio Ceramics and now has worked in the field of Textile Art for 16 years. Primarily a felt maker she explores, through innovation, the many ways wool can be formed and coaxed into new and interesting shapes. Pam is also a natural dyer and printmaker, using her home in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia, as a constant source of inspiration and colour. Organic forms and texture are a
common theme throughout her work, with the various properties of wool and the colours of nature influencing each piece. See some of her work at pamdegroot.com.

FELTED FREEFORM TUNIC
Tuesday, August 1 – Thursday August 3, 9:30am–4:30pm; $395

ANN BUDD

TOE UP SOCKS WITH WEDGE TOE AND SHORT ROW HEEL
1 Session $100
Saturday, August 12, 10–4:30pm
Most knitters learn to knit socks from the cuff down to the toe, but they can also be knitted in the opposite direction—from toe up to the cuff, eliminating the need to pick up stitches for the gusset or work the dreaded Kitchener stitch. Learn to knit socks from the toe up using an Eastern cast-on, short-row heel, and flexible sewn bind-off. You will make a small sock to learn all of the skills in one day and leave ready to knit socks in a variety of
sizes and yarn weights. ADVANCED-BEGINNER KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED;
MUST BE COMFORTABLE WORKING ON DOUBLEPOINTED NEEDLES.

Ann Budd is the author of more than a dozen books, including The Knitter's Handy Book series, Getting Started Knitting Socks, Sock Knitting Master Class and many of the STYLE series. She teaches class on land and sea and around the world. Learn more at annbuddknits.com.

ADELE BEERMAN

SELF CARE FOR FIBER FOLK
1 Session $40
Sunday, June 4, 1–3pm
This class will explore a variety of techniques that address tension, stress, discomfort and even pain that come with time spent creating your projects. Repetitive movements tend to
overuse some muscles and underuse others. Our goal will be to reach a balance that allows you to work with comfort and ease. You’ll learn strategies to release discomfort before it becomes a problem.

Adele Beerman is a licensed massage therapist, has a BA in Theater Dance, is a Reiki Master, and has been practicing massage and acupressure therapy for more than 30 years. Her additional studies include Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, FMT, Orthobionomy, Yoga and Qigong. She loves to knit, crochet, embroider and sew.
