Knit & Nosh: Get Down with Upcycling

  • 101 THREADS 118 Court Street New Haven, CT, 06510 United States (map)

Get Down with Upcycling. Learn to literally knit the shirt off your back!

This class will cover the basics of knitting, deconstructing a garment, turning it into yarn, and knitting a scarf. This is an excellent way to get use out of garments that you no longer wear but still love or that have sentimental value. Bring a large piece of clothing or two (e.g. long skirt, dress, long sleeve shirt) or a few yards of fabric that you're ready to cut up and take home a scarf.

Join us at 101 Threads Art Gallery (118 Court Street, New Haven, metered on street parking) on January 29th from 6-8pm. Your instructor Jessica Pollard, who has been obsessed with knitting for a decade, will provide homemade goodies, laughs, and a low pressure learning environment, especially since it’s BYOB! Class fee of $20 includes all materials needed (knitting needles and fabric if you don't want to bring a garment to use or want to work a practice sample), food, and all the instructions you’ll need to make a funky scarf.

Please contact drjpollard@gmail.com with any questions and email to reserve your spot in advance so that we make sure to have enough materials and goodies.
