What's Included

Instructor: Lynn Hunter, www.jlynnhunter.com Want to make some room in your closet to make more room for summer clothes? Turn your old clothes into new artistic rugs. In this workshop, students will learn the basic crochet stitches and how to transform old clothes and fabric into yarn. Students will start working on a small crochet rug using the "yarn" made in class. ** Student's won't likely finish the project during the class duration, but will leave with the knowledge and the tools to continue on their own. -- The After Workshops are a series of high quality hands-on classes, at low cost and low commitment. Materials, skills and fun supplied. And it's BYOB.

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 

 

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
