Saturday One Day Retreat
August 4, 2012

This one day retreat will awaken your creative knitting and crochet juices. Knitters and crocheters are welcome. First thing, we will hop right into learning about color and how to combine colors effectively and fearlessly. You will learn how to see color, how to combine colors, and how to work with colors. We will take our inspiration from nature and from art. You will learn how to use these techniques when designing your own projects later in the day.

You will need to complete some homework you will receive upon registration to get the most out of your day at the farm. This class is not for beginners but is for knitters and crocheters who have basic skills and the desire to learn.

Using the knitting or crochet homework that you bring with you, you will learn how to build your own flower creations. Depending on your skill level and speed, you may learn how to create your very own flower design. You will be able to bring your projects home to felt them or we may felt some of the projects if time allows. This will be a creative and fun day spent in a lovely setting and you will leave excited to try more of the techniques out when you get back to your very own home.

Here are some projects which use flowers and you will be able to use the flowers you make in similar projects.
