West Coast Knitting Retreat
November 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - November 8, 2019 @ 5:00 pm$500 – $550
Come together with other knitting enthusiasts for a variety of workshops led by local and visiting instructors. Nestled in a cozy, ocean-level room at the end of an active surge channel, you will learn the secrets of brioche knitting and create lofty, squishy, and reversible fabric, make handknit slippers in the round with a cute cable detail, and explore all about wool, sampling a variety of yarns from Vancouver Island sheep. You’ll also have a chance to try your hand at spinning sheep fleece and weaving with locally-sourced cedar, stretch your legs and learn about coastal rainforests while taking in spectacular views from the Wild Pacific Trail, and enjoy a west coast feast at Heartwood Kitchen.
