Join Kate Sterner, who will teach you how to make a singlade ball, a colorful toy for a toddle or spoiled cat. Kate explains,"When our grandparents were children, they didn't have all the toys and gizmos we have today. They played with simple toys, often hand made by a loving parent. Take a normal hand-sized ball, for example. Gather simple and cheap household materials, such as cork, rags and some yarn from your stash, and you can make a beautiful piece of art, as well as a hardy play thing for a child. Only a few generations ago in Denmark and the southern regions of Sweden, there developed a little known craft called a "singlade" ball (literally "flipped" or "tossed") or more descriptively, an embroidered ball. The technique is simple, creative and satisfying. Want to learn how to 'singla' a ball? Join our class!" Materials needed: Darning needle and colorful, worsted weight wool yarn. $25. Saturdays, May 24, 31, and June 7 10 a.m. to noon.
