Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts

Serenity Stones

August 29, 2021

Schedule: 9 am-noon Sun

Instructor: Marianne Biagi

Registration Deadline: Aug 16

Description

Stones talk to me. While beachcombing, walking, hiking, I cannot pass up a good-looking stone! If you love stones and fill your pockets like me, this class is for you!

You will learn a few simple knots to wrap stones with leather cord. The first knot will bind a twig or bamboo stick around a stone. The second stone will be wrapped using a Japanese knot technique. There will be time in the class to experiment with assorted sized stones and other Japanese-inspired knots to make each creation truly your own. Bring your own favorite stones, or select from a variety of stones provided.

Marianne will provide written instructional handouts.

Class size 14

Task light (or borrow one of ours!), scissors for cutting leather cord, stones (if you like) preferably smooth, needle nose pliers or tweezers (to be used with leather), eye glasses if needed for close-up work.
