Knitting 2

Knitting 2 with Kim Van Rijn on Tuesdays, March 6 - May 1 (no class April 3) from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  This class is for those who were in Kim’s recent learning to knit classes or for those who know the basics such as how to cast on stitches, knit, purl, and bind off. It’s a suitable class for those who learned to knit at some point but are rusty. In this series you will learn such basics as how to read a knitting pattern, and how to increase and decrease your stitches. You will learn some new stitches and you will actually make something!  Bring your knitting supplies to the first class. Kim will provide a list of materials that you will need to purchase.   

Cost $40...yes, that's right, just $40!   (PAC members receive a 20% discount)       Limit 7

Arm-Knitting Workshop

Join the members of the Knitters Guild on Sunday, April 15 from 2:00-5:00 p.m.  You don't need needles to knit.  What?!  It's true!  Members of the Knitters Guild will guide you through this relatively simple process that uses your arms and hands instead of needles.  Please register in advance so we will have ample materials ready.  There is no charge for this class but we request a donation on the day to cover time and materials.  Teens and adults welcomed, children may attend with an adult.  


Most classes require a minimum of 4 students in order to run and/or have maximum number limits so… PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE TO ENSURE THAT YOU CAN GET INTO THE CLASS YOU WANT. Parkersburg Art Center reserves the right to withhold a partial administrative fee from all class refunds.
