Guys, I was really lucky to get in this workshop. I was on the wait list because the class was full. Fortunately, the yarn shop (Creative Yarns) was able to hold another one because too many wanted to do the class...yay!
To see these authentic Cowichan items was just great, and Ms. Olsen is such a great story teller. If you have the opportunity to go see her, I highly recommend it:)
The workshop included a toque kit (yarns and pattern), because we were also taught how to knit the way Coast Salish knitters do. So different from the traditional colour work style of Fair Isle/Intarsia knitting....
|This dress was awesome outside AND inside.|
|There was a draw for prizes that the yarn owner (Nina) did. She's so nice.|
|This is the finished hat from the workshop:)|
|What it looks like inside. I haven't perfected the technique, but still happy with how it turned out:D|
Have you attended a workshop like this?
