Playing with this simple technique allows us to understand where we start and how to use Tunisian Crochet in different ways; fabric, color-work, stitches, and embellishment. We will spend time on each idea to see how one flows into the next, creating a true love of modern Tunisian Crochet.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 4 weeks following the event.

From basic Tunisian Crochet to understanding how to work different variations: How to play with color-work, change shapes, make it look like knitting, embellish the surface with additional crochet.
Session 1: We’ll cover Basic Tunisian and color work.
Session 2: We’ll play with variations of Tunisian like changing the shape with decreases and increases (think miters and entrelac) and how to make it look like knitting.
Session 3: Homework between Sessions 2 and 3 will be to create a separate Tunisian swatch that you can embellish — all done with crochet.

Wonderful class, enjoyed it very much. I liked that the class kit was optional. Some coaching for lefties would be helpful. Some discussion about double ended hooks would also be interesting. Barry was a patient and understanding teacher. He often checked in with each student to make sure they were on track. He had a great deal of information and excellent tips. His examples were inspiring.
