The Sixth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival will be here soon and we cannot wait!
The Festival will be held at the Oxford Powerhouse on Friday, January 29 and Saturday, January 30, 2016, with some additional classes and opening reception on Thursday, January 28, 2016.
Every day, we will post information about one of the 22 classes and information about one of the participating vendors.
Our featured class today is Intermediate Shuttle Tatting – Rings and Chains.
For those who have mastered shuttle tatting rings, it is time to add chains! In this class, held on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 9 a.m. to noon and taught by Roiana Buckmaster, students will learn to add a second thread from the ball and use two threads to make chains and rings, forming a continuous length of lace edging or more complicated medallions than rings alone. We will also explore reading patterns from a chart or written lines and hiding thread ends for a tidy finish. Materials are provided as well as a tatting shuttle for students to keep, and are included in the class fee. PLEASE NOTE: students need to feel comfortable with the basic tatting stitch. There will be a class limit of 10 students which means I will not be able to show a beginner the one-on-one attention I prefer to give them. Someone who has mastered tatting in the past and just needs a brush up would probably be fine. This class will cost $45.
Call the Shop starting on December 20 to sign up for this class! Space is limited, so be sure to sign up soon. For full class listings, visit our class page.
