This is an introductory class (for adults only) to shuttle tatting. Tatting dates back to the 1700"s and was found throughout Europe. You will learn the basic "double stitch" which has to be mastered before working with patterns. Just bring plenty of patience and remember to just have fun while you learn something new!
**Please note: if you have dexterity problems with your fingers, this may not be the class for you. You will be using your fingers similar to knitting or crochet
Kit included (shuttle/thread/cording/handouts)
Must have a minimum of 2 participants in order to have the workshop. Maximum number of participants is 4.
Christy Castille was inspired by her great grandmother's tatting shuttles and learned tatting at the age of nine. Many of her tatted items are inspired by vintage patterns. You can find Christy demonstrating at many folk life events or handmade shows. She proudly shares the history of tatting, teaches others how to shuttle tat, and encourages everyone to pass on their heritage to the next generation.
