Calling all young mavericks and creative thinkers! Do you love making things with your hands? Would you like to channel your imagination into crafting toys, tools, and tactical fashion from yarn?

Start by learning the basics of crocheting, including how to make single and double crochet stitches.

Using the crochet skills you’ve learned, dream up a 2D or 3D final project that is as unique as you. Your teacher will support you along the way as you put your vision into action! Create a plushie to travel with you on adventures, a holster for your sword to prepare for battle, a colorful pouch to hold your coins and collectables, or whatever ignites your creative fire.

Share your artwork with friends and family in a Show and Tell reception at the end of the class!
