You’ve heard about the wonders of blocking but you’ve never tried it yourself. Or you tried blocking but have questions. Well, it’s time to dive in! In this workshop we’ll learn why and how to use basic blocking techniques as well as the best techniques for each type of hand made fabric and which are the most useful tools for each. Please note: No knitting or crochet instruction will take place in this class. It is strictly a finishing workshop. We will not be blocking garments in this class.
