Thrumming is a technique to add extra warmth into our handmade items, and has been around for hundreds of years - whether a crocheter or knitter, grab that thrumming pattern that has caught your eye and we'll show you how to thrum! In this 90 minute workshop we'll share the history of thrumming with you, and show you the basic techniques to turn roving into useful thrums for both crochet and knitting. Our goal is to have you leave with the confidence to tackle your thrumming project, and if you need additional project support, you can always come back again for Quick Help or in a Bring Your Own Project class.
