Crochet the Day Away: Rug Crocheting
Saturday, March 20, 2021
10:00am – 4:00pm
No sewing, no braiding, and no experience needed — you only need two easy crochet stitches to make these beautiful rugs! In this one-day workshop participants will learn the ins and outs of rug crocheting with an experienced Artist/Instructor. The instructor will provide all the knowledge and tools necessary for students to each complete the majority of a handmade oval rug (approx. 24” x 43”) during the workshop. With these new skills, students will be able to complete their rugs in just 2-3 hours of easy work at home. Doris is happy to provide additional guidance to students who may have questions after the completion of the workshop. Students will choose from packages of complementary fabrics, and receive instruction booklet and a handcrafted wooden hook. This workshop is open to all skill-levels, ages 18+. Join us for this fun and rewarding day of crochet!
Please note the following:
- Mask wearing will be mandatory for the entirety of this workshop.
- This course will have an informal lunch period. Please bring a lunch that can be eaten at your desk. Our School has a fridge and microwave for your use.
