    Yarn Scavenging

    6:30pm - 8:00pm

    Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center

    1802 North Illinois Street

     

     

    Have you ever found a sweater in the most amazing color but it was just all wrong?  Wondering how you can craft with all those plastic bags laying around?  In this class, we will learn how to create yarn from some materials you probably already have around the house.  From jeans to plastic bags, even sweaters found at Goodwill - we will deconstruct items one by one and turn them into yarn you can knit, crochet and craft with.  I will show you the methods I've experimented with, as well as lots of resources and information that you can use when trying to find yarn on the cheap.  I encourage you to bring your old t-shirts, jeans and sweaters to class!  Sign up by clicking the link below!

    Even with the ever-increasing postal rates, there still exists a small group of us who believe in sending handwritten letters and documenting our Nuvo DIYvacations through postcards. In this class, we will introduce you to the world of mail art and mail swapping. We will discuss how you can use your artistic talents when sending mail, where to find pen pals, postal rules, the best mail swapping sites and all of the interesting items you can send or potentially receive! Each student will leave with fun mail goodies, new pen pals and a chance to play with our awesome typewriter.
