winter classes at clay wood & cotton (beacon, NY)

Winter Class Lineup

We've put together an amazing lineup of Saturday classes to help you beat the winter blues. There's something for everyone — make something with yarn, paper, wool and more!

Classes make great gifts! We can hook you up with a gift certificate for one of these great classes. We're open all day, 11:30am until 9pm tomorrow, Christmas Eve.

  • Bookbinding, 1/16, 5:30-9:30pm. Learn to make your own books with Nic Taylor, one half of Garrison's Thunderwing Press. In this 4-hour workshop, attendees will become accustomed with the philosophy and art of both Eastern and Western bookbinding, the materials used in construction, as well as have an opportunity to create their very own original bound book.
  • Make Your Own Greeting Cards, 1/23. Use techniques like collage and your own custom stamps to create your very own line of cards! This is a great class for teens and older artsy kids as well— 10 and over welcome with a grown-up, 13 and over welcome solo.
  • Crochet 101, 1/30. Never picked up a crochet hook before? We’ll get you started in this 2-hour class. You’ll learn the basic stitches and get going on a simple project—and get the pattern to take home! $15 materials fee, optional.
  • Needle Felting, 2/6, $10 materials fee. Learn to make soft creatures, pendants, ornaments, or anything you like by "sculpting" with wool and a special felting needle. We're hosting Nguyen Le, the fiber artist behind KnitKnit whose work has received national coverage, as the instructor for this class.
  • Embroidery, 2/13, $10 materials fee. Learn the basics of embroidery with crafter and maker extrordinaire Cal Patch of Hodge Podge Farm. Practice your new skills on an original Valentine's Day pattern.
  • Knitting Class: Superstar Hat with Jill Draper, 2/20, materials optional (see note). Afraid to use circulars or double points? This super easy hat is knit sideways on two needles with one seam. Even if you are a hat knitting pro, this is a fun twist on the classic cap.
  • Soap Making For Kids, 2/27. Bring the kids in to learn to make soap with Tara and Jeff, who make the luscious Meow Meow Tweet line of soaps.
We've got more on the way in March — more knitting, appliqué, kids' jewelry and monster making. We'll be announcing them soon, you can also bookmark our Google calendar.
