Here is a list with description of the amazing classes being taught at Ice Weasel. I will be adding more class descriptions as I get them.
Built Fjord Tough: Sewing Sturdy Seams Built Fjord Tough: Sewing Sturdy Seams Baroness Nastassiia Ivanova Medvedeva, called Tasha Students should have a familiarity with basic hand sewing stitches. This class will cover methods of hand sewing for construction, and finishing seams and hems in wool and linen so that your garments do not fray off your body. In addition, we will cover a method of sewing a construction seam while also flat-lining your garment. Bring scrap fabric and needles if you want to play along; some will be available, but no promises.
Simple Stiches*Simple Stitches for Starting Stitchers. Come and learn 5 simple stitches. This class is geared for the beginning stitcher. Stitches covered will be – Straight, Stem, Split, Satin and Short & Long. Kit provided will have fabric with a motif (design) and a needle. Floss will be provided. Loaner hoops will be available. Please bring scissors or snips. Class Limit – 10 people. $0. For those that took the class last year, there will be a different motif, I will also have handout for Blanket, Whip and Chain Stitches.

Learn basic wire plaiting, silver forging, and the making of simple rings for yourself and Largesse! Tools and materials will be on hand for anyone to partake.
Cheese Making: Mistress Nest Verch Tangwistel Everyone is going to have to bring a few items for themselves including: 1 gallon of milk (not ultra-pasteurized, but regular pasteurized homogenized milk is fine), a pot large enough to hold it, and a second pot or tub large enough to hold the pot with the milk in it. We want to heat up the milk in a water bath, and we will not have enough room in the sink. Bring a collander, a bowl big enough for the milk and a big spoon.Making friends with your loom: Lady Dahni: Details following.
