Rock around the block, baby! By popular demand, and by virtue of the fact that we're moving out of our current space at the end of June, we're finally able to offer a class on one of our most-requested subjects: blocking! 

Blocking is the act – the art – of finishing your projects with a combination of water (soak, steam, or spritz), shaping, and drying to reach your desired size and even out your stitches. In this class, you will learn all the necessary techniques, as well as which methods work best for what sorts of fibers.

Participants will be guided through blocking any finished garment of their choosing, and leave it here at the shop to dry! 

This workshop is great for fiber artists of any skill level, and would be especially good for anyone with a large garment who may need extra space to accomplish their blocking goals (totally normal in NYC!).

INSTRUCTOR
Cleo (they/she)
