    Ocean Knot Mat  Instructor Greg Neitzel 

    Dates and Times October 26, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

    Location  BMC West Side Meeting Rooms

    Tuition $35 members / $40 non-members

    Discount for BOTH classes (Ocean Knot Mat and Kringle Knot Mat):  $60 members / $70 non-members

    Description       Join local artist and educator Greg Neitzel who will lead you through the process of weaving a nautical mat from recycled fishing line. Originally woven to protect the decks of wooden boats, today these mats have been transformed into decorative art, table runners, doormats and more. In each of these classes you will learn a unique skill and weave a mat that is both beautiful and functional to take home, while at the same time repurposing braided commercial fishing line that would otherwise be discarded. Classes run between 2 and 3 hours, and students should be prepared to be on their feet during this time.

    Skill Level    No previous experience necessary, however, Greg encourages you to bring your pride in craftsmanship, tenacity, and the ability to focus and concentrate for a couple of hours.

    Class Size   Minimum of 3, maximum of 6

    Tools    All materials and tools will be provided, but please have trimmed nails as you will be weaving the line through some tight bends and curves.

    Deadline to Register   Two weeks prior to first day of class
