We invite you to join us for our annual cooking and dining class with Roshan Aubin Saturday, February 18th. Roshan will share her love of cooking as we prepare an East Indian meal which we will later enjoy as a sit-down meal. This is a great afternoon of learning and socializing. If you are interested, please email Kathy at email@example.com. The menu includes: pakoras with sauce, beef curry, vegetable curry, khichdi (rice and beans) and gulab jambu.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn to weave.
Here is a brief overview of the course. At the end of three lessons you will have warped a table loom and woven a sample for future reference. Topics covered include: reading a draft, calculating the amount of yarn you require for a project, winding the warp, dressing the loom, using a shuttle and bobbin winder, keeping track of your project. You will have the skills required to set up a loom, plan a project and weave it. All materials and tools required are provided to you. There will be "homework" to complete during the week. Reference material (books, dvds) will be available for you to review during the week.
