'Be Creative: Ponchini Workshop for All Levels with Steven Berg
The Ponchini is the new shawl: a versatile garment with so many design possibilities. This is your chance to cast on one with the help of the Ponchini Master himself, Steven, as he guides you through your first Ponchini or your own design idea.
Experience the magic of mixology (taking a variety of yarns from different brands, weights, and fiber contents) to create a magical and unique wrap. Use one of the patterns from Ponchini Vol. 1 and learn its structure, seaming, and wearability.
Steven will teach you his favorite tips and tricks as he guides you through your favorite Ponchini, whether it's your first or your 10th.
__The Ponchini Vol. 1 book (can be acquired in class)
__a minimum of 3 yarns to work with; we love to experiment with finer weights like lace and fingering and fiber contents like mohair and silk to be combined into a heavier weight. Yarns should be chosen and wound prior to class so we can begin immediately. More yarns can be added during class. Choose a color palette when bringing your stash to make it cohesive
__a variety of needle sizes will be needed so bring a good selection (we recommend an interchangeable set)
__a work-in-progress or finished project for show and tell (the desire to be admired is not required but it is recommended!)
