About the Event
Crochet is creative and fun! Keeping up with the trends is easy once you know the basic techniques.
You'll learn the basics and beyond (chain st, single crochet, double crochet, slip st); enough to start your first project. You will also learn how to do textures, ridges and work in the round to further your crochet skills. You'll make a fashionable beanie for any age!
Classes are designed for people who have NO crochet experience whatsoever. Ambitious beginners are welcome!
All materials provided, including 1 skein of yarn, 1 crochet hook and 1 yarn needle .
We have 7 different yarn colors to choose from, but only 1 skein of each color, so once a color is claimed, it will no longer be available. View the colors we have available here: https://www.artswhitelake.org/intro-to-crochet-yarn Tickets are listed according to the color of yarn, so when you select your ticket, you will choose your yarn color!
Crocheting is good for mental health because it requires mindfulness. As you crochet, you need to pay attention to each stitch, the movement of your hook or needle, your breath, your stitch count. “When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future"
November 11: crochet terminology, how to hold the crochet hook and yarn, chain stitch, single crochet stitch, double crochet stitch
November 18: crocheting in front and back post, creating textures, ridges and working in the round and learning final touch techniques.
