Thursday, July 27th | 5:30PM-8:00PM | Introduction to Crocheting

Want to learn to crochet but find most tutorials or patterns to be gibberish? In this introductory crash course, students will learn basic crochet skills, as well as the ability to decode crochet patterns and decipher common acronyms. This workshop will primarily focus on chaining, tying a slipknot, and slip stitching. We will also practice the single and double crochet stitch. In addition to mechanics and technique, students will discuss the most sustainable and ethically produced types of yarn and brands. Please note: all materials will be provided.

Please note: A Happy Half Hour will be offered before class from 5:30pm-6:00pm, and the class will begin at 6:00pm. Students will be welcome to a complimentary happy hour or non-alcoholic drink of choice. Food will be available for purchase before and during class. Check out the menu here!

This class is appropriate for ages 14+.

This class will take place indoors at Red White and Brew of Rochester, located at 147 State St, Rochester, NY 14614.
