Make-a-Yarn-Bowl Night at BAGI

  • July 30, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Laura has arranged a special event for this month's 5th Wednesday. It's make a glass yarn bowl night at BAGI. The cost to blow a glass yarn bowl is $99 per person. Those that don't want to get that close to the hot furnace can watch from the sidelines (it is fascinating to watch). If you don't want to work with glass, you can of course still come and knit at no cost.

Laura will need to know how many of you are going to be making a bowl so we are asking for RSVP's no later than 5 days ahead. The night is starting earlier to allow time for a demonstration and to make the bowl. Those purchasing the class can pay that night with credit card/cash. However, we really do need a tight count so we have the supplies ready. An accurate RSVP is much more important this time.

Since this location does not have food, please bring something to share. If you know what you're bringing, note it in the comments so we can try to have some variety in food and drink. I have napkins, plastic utensils, bowls and about 10 paper plates that I can bring. Someone will need to bring disposable cups and more plates if we have over 10 people. 

Those that are attending and making bowls should need to wear cotton clothing with sleeves on their shirts and closed toe shoes for safety. No sandals or flip flops. Please email Laura, our host, if you have any additional questions. Treg Silkwood BAGI's main artist will be teaching the class. BAGI's website is: www.bagi.org.

    I RSVP'd a couple of weeks ago and I'm not sure why it's disappeared. I can't make a bowl, but I was going to watch. I signed up to bring King egg rolls. I'm not sure all my comments were deleted.

      Bridget, I don't see you either! Just come. Weird about your disappearing RSVP.

    This is a FANTASTIC sounding event and I am super super sad I will be in Wisconsin celebrating my granny's birthday. I cannot wait to see the photos of the bowls you all make. Yaaay, meetup!

    I have a question. Can we customize anything (color, shape, etc.) or will the yarn bowl be generic?

    • Sharon B.

      All the projects I've done there, you've had color choices.

      Sharon is correct, we may be limited to one notch or whole, with glass it is much more complicated for more than one hole or one notch to be included -- and we would need advanced glasses for that much specialization.

    Sounds fun, but can't afford it. I may show up and just knit; Is anyone else planning on doing that, is there room?

    July 22, 2014

    • Laura L.

      And go ahead and rsvp to just attend. We do need to know who is coming, and it's a potluck so if you can bring something to share that would be great, just include in your comments what you are willing to bring.

    • ConnieB

      I am thinking of pizza for the potluck part

      July 27, 2014

  • Krista

    I'm bringing veggies and dip.

    Just wanted to add that if you have long hair, and sign up to make a bowl please make sure to tie it back.
