Crochet 101: Sculptural Crochet

Tues  6:30- 9:30 PM,  October 4 – October 25

Textile Arts Center, Manhattan

26 W. 8th Street

Crochet is the process of using a hook to pull loops through other loops to create fabric.  Each stitch can be conceived of as a pixel or building block; the variation of size and number of stitches lending a distinct three-dimensional form.  Only one stitch is dealt with at a time, making it easy to adjust along the way and experiment without a formal pattern. In this workshop you will learn to use the basic building blocks of crochet– chaining, single crochet, and double crochet– to create various three-dimensional shapes and sculptures of your choosing.  No experience with crochet is necessary and all levels are welcome. Come with a project in mind or simply a desire to play and improvise.

Please pass on to any of your crafty friends in NYC!
