• Classes offered at Hagood Center

New Fiber Room Center activities at the Hagood Center in Pickens have been scheduled for January and February.

There will be additional new activities scheduled throughout the next few months. Pre-registration and lists of the supplies are not available. In January, the center will offer self-binding receiving blankets with Sara. Cost is a $5 donation for the center.

On Jan. 25 and Feb. 1 and 8, enjoy an introductory painting on silk three-day class with Cheryl. All supplies will be provided at the cost of a $10 donation to the center.

A new weaving class will be held each Tuesday from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. This class will continue each Tuesday for approximately three months. During the class the participants will complete three weaving projects: a teacher orientation practice project, a teacher directed color-scamp project, and a student designed project. At the completion of the class, the participants should be able to weave “on your own.” The participants will be expected to purchase a book and minimal supplies for a total cost of approximately $20.

On Jan. 14 and 21 will be the “self-binding receiving blanket” with Sara. It is an all-day participation class beginning at 9 a.m. and lasting until 2:30 p.m., with a break for lunch around 11:30 a.m. The cost for the class is a $5 donation to the Pickens Community Center. Please have your squares of flannel cut before class. Supplies you will need include one 40-inch square of flannel, one 30-inch square of contrasting flannel and thread to match.

The center does have a few sewing machines which have been donated, but you may prefer to bring your own.
