In this 4 hour workshop, you’ll make a net bag for a bottle of wine or water, or few things from the grocery store.  Using a shuttle and paracord you’ll learn the basic knots and process of making a net bag.  You'll go home with a finished bag, shuttle and hook for future use, and visual aids to help you make your next bag or project.  Beginners are welcome!

Supplies: All supplies will be provided.

Sustenance: Light snacks and beverages will be provided and there will be a half hour break for lunch. Bring your own lunch or you can step out onto Warren Street to pick one up!

She has studied embroidery in Hungary, Romania, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Ukraine. She holds an MFA from Rutgers University.  Find her online at threadwritten.com and on IG @threadwritten.
