Crochet: Snowflake Workshop Have you wished you were confident enough to follow a pattern and create lovely lace snowflakes? This single session class will help you to do just that! Whether you want to try traditional thread work, or prefer to learn by creating larger scale versions of the same elegant lace, you will have your choice of 2 or 3 different patterns, and expert guidance as you create your winter decoration, suitable as a tree ornament, gift topper, or to hang in a window. To be ready for this workshop, you need to be comfortable with working basic crochet stitches (chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet). You'll need the white or off white thread or yarn you'd like to use, and an appropriate size hook for that fiber, scissors and a darning needle. Instructor will contact pre-registered students to discuss yarn and hook choice. During the workshop, you'll make at least one snowflake, and those who have time will be able to try a variety of patterns with guidance. Patterns are free. Class fee for the single session is $10. Workshop date and time: Saturday, Nov. 2, 1-2:30p.m.
