Instructor’s Name: Pam Atkinson


Workshop Title: Beginner Crochet


Workshop Description: Join Pam in learning the basic crochet stitches that open doors to making charming creatures and wearable pieces. As she says, "I’m not an expert hooker but am proof that the basic stitches and methods for working flat shapes and round forms in crochet can make it a medium that allows entry level skills to become creative fun with everything from things practical and wearable to things weird and wild. Like all fibre artistry, once a hooker is hooked the temptation to let things get more complicated could be irresistible and I’d love to go along for the ride into future learning."
