Explore the craft of thrumming, a tradition native to Newfoundland and Labrador, in this two hour knitting workshop with Cecilia Jacobs (a.k.a. The Ginger Sheep). We will explore the different fibres used for thrums, the different techniques used for thrumming and the assortment of projects you can make with thrumming. We will knit a headband so that everyone will get to practice making thrums. Beginner knitting experience required.
