In Person: Beginner's Crochet
Taught by Rhiannon Platt
Rhiannon Platt is at least third generation fiber artist. Raised by seamstresses, crocheters, and fiber artists of all kinds, she picked up her first pair of needles over a decade ago. Since her first scarf, Rhiannon has gone on to fabricate for Lion Brand Yarn, Nathan Vincent, Olek, Jeila Gueramian, Londonkaye, and Levi’s. In between commissions, she finds time to write patterns and make endless sweaters.
My personal favorite craft for making weird shapes, crochet lends itself easily to making anything your mind can imagine! Want to make a life sized toucan? Or your favorite Animal Crossing character? No problem!
In this introductory class, students will learn the foundations of crochet including the chain, single crochet, and pattern reading. With these skills students can make a wide variety of projects after the class, such as hand warmers, scarves, blankets, and the foundations for one of crochet’s most popular applications, amigurumi!
