Shetland Hap - Gudrun Johnston

  • PNE Hastings Room 2 2901 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 5J1 Canada (map)

Learn how to knit a traditional Hap (shawl) from the Shetland Islands. This beautiful heirloom shawl makes a great gift for a new baby and is a great introduction to Shetland Lace knitting.

We will make a mini version of this shawl in class (as a half hap) and students will leave with the necessary skills to make their own full sized version at home. A copy of a Hap pattern will be provided via email after class.

Gudrun will also give a brief slide show explaining some of the history behind these shawls.

Supplies to bring:

Homework: none

Class Level: Intermediate

3 hour class - $120
