What is it about rocks that make us want to hold them? Why do any of us find one thing more lovely than the next? Stone netting is a chance to work with your own intuitive aesthetic, while also learning an ancient weaving technique. Come spend an evening gathering and weaving some beauty to bring home. Join us for a night of imagining, making and play.
In this class you will begin by choosing a stone you want to work with. We will then be learning a technique called knotless netting to weave a net around our stones. As with most weaving, knotless netting is a lot of repetition. You will have time to practice and get comfortable with the technique as well as a chance to design your piece as you go. We will talk about some of the ways knotless netting has been used traditionally and through learning this skill, spend an evening connected to this lineage of human endeavor.
