Crochet + Weaving Classes Scheduled!
Intro to Freeform Crochet
Level: Advanced Beginner
Supplies: Leftover yarn from your stash of various colors and textures, and crochet hooks of various gauges. (If you don't have these on hand the instructor will have hooks that you may use). Additionally, yarns & tools are available for purchase at LYS.
The only requirement for this class is basic crochet skills. You must know how to chain and single crochet. In this class you will learn the fundamentals you need to begin free form crochet. We will learn double crochet, how to increase, and how to change colors/yarns. These simple techniques will open you up to a world of possibilities. This is very abstract, artistic crochet that does not use patterns. Be creative and experiment using the yarn as your canvas and the hook as your paint brush. There are no mistakes, so just have fun and see where your imagination takes you. We will attempt to complete a sample swatch and perhaps more by the end of class.
Session 1: Wednesday, May 20
Session 2: Saturday, May 30
Session 1: 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Session 2: 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Registration will open immediately and is limited to 8 students per session.
Classes will meet at LYS on Gallery Row, Lancaster.
Scarf Weaving Workshop
Supplies: Students bring scissors & tape measure, teacher supplies looms, yarns
Scarves are such a personal statement. Why not weave your own long, flowing scarf, using a simple table loom. Students have fun watching their scarf build in color & texture. Instruction includes the finishing techniques of hemstitching and creating twisted fringe. No experience necessary.
Instructor: Susan Weaver has been a hand weaving instructor for over 20 years. She worked as the Textile Educator at Landis Valley Museum in Lancaster for 7 years. She sells a variety of her hand woven items, locally and nationally. She is a member of the PA Guild of Craftsmen and the Central PA Guild of Weavers.
