Times: 4 Thursdays 7:00 – 9:30 pm
Instructor: Mimi Stockland

Description: This class approaches the craft of crochet from a contemporary art perspective and explores how to move simple textile technique beyond making flat pieces and simple garments, into the realm of 3D crochet. The workshop will use mathematical concepts to think about crochet, and ultimately give you the freedom to manipulate yarn and form in a fresh, inventive way that satisfies your imagination. By using one simple, foundation technique, students with little experience will, by the end of the 4 weeks, will be able to create shapes and more complex sculptural pieces. This class will expand the horizons of what is possible in crochet and give you more tools to add to your creative belt. Open to all level experiences. Bring 2 to 3 different sizes of crochet hooks and any favorite yarns. Experimentation is highly encouraged and students may bring any type of flexible materials they are interested in exploring.

Crochet: Hats (Winter)

Date: January 30 – February 20  2018
Time: 4 Tuesdays, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Instructor: Pearl Fifield

Details: Crochet is a centuries old technique that has seen a revival in recent years with contemporary applications and designs.  It’s a craft you can take anywhere with you as it uses only a hook and a ball of thread or yarn.  The loops and chains of crochet are made with only four different stitches, then all of the different patterns and designs are just different combinations of those four basics.  Use these simple steps to craft a multitude of projects like hats, scarves, doilies, tablecloths, mini-monsters, chair-covers, and more!

Fee: $64 (includes HST and most supplies)

Supplies will be discussed in the first class with your instructor.

In this class you will learn how to knit, purl, cast on, cast off, increase, decrease, how to fix mistakes, and how to follow simple stitch patterns. In four Tuesday evenings Pearl will get you knitting as you practice the basics and complete your choice of suggested projects – hats, scarves, dishtowels are common favourite firsts.
