Does your tween want to learn crochet? Crochet for Kids is a Spun is a new 3 week class at Spun in Kerrytown. In the class, students will learn crochet while making a fun project.
Crochet for Kids Class
Crochet for Kids is for tweens, ages 8-13, who are new to crochet. The class project is a small pouch with an optional strap and an antique button closure. The first week will focus on the basics of crochet: holding the hook and yarn, starting a project and making basic stitches. Students will continue to gain familiarity with the stitches and methods the second week. The final week will be finishing the project, adding a button, and a handle (time-permitting). Each student will get to take home their pouch and a crochet hook at the end of the class. Details and a sample photo can be found on the Spun website.
With a limited class size of just 5 students, there will be plenty of time for one on one instruction.
