Crochet a Stuffed Animal!
Time & Location
About the Workshop
Learn the art of Amigurumi, or crocheting small animals! Lots of options to choose from, including monkey, bunny, alien, flower fairy and bumblebee!
This is a multi-class course, with one class per week, which takes you from learning how to crochet to creating your very own crocheted animal! We meet Saturday Mornings from 10am-12pm, on Nov. 30th, Dec. 7th, and Dec. 14th. You'll have a completed animal just in time to wrap it and put it under the tree!
Our talented instructor, Danielle, at Spin Me A Yarn, will take you through this class, from start to finish. No prior crocheting experience required - we teach you everything from scratch!
All materials included, including the animal crochet kit, pattern, hook, yarn. Enjoy light refreshments and drinks (coffee/ tea) included in the ticket price.
Our instructor will take you through:
- Learning basic crochet
- Learning to read the pattern and increases/decreases
- Creating the pieces & putting them together
Crocheting is a lot like knitting, right? Well, kind of. It only uses one hook, and the process involves pulling yarn through a loop, and then repeating. Whereas the history of knitting is very long, stemming from centuries back, crocheting is a newer activity. There are indicators that it stems from the mid-nineteenth century, when detailed instructions appeared in magazines to teach readers how to crochet, based on the presumption that they had some basic skills in other needlecrafts. Some people say it’s easier to learn than knitting, and you might agree after attending this workshop led by our talented and friendly Boomerang host.
