AGM Crochet, Math, and Patterns | torsdag, 18. juni 2020

Learn how to make a set of crochet nesting bowls while learning math!

About this Event

In this creative + meditative workshop, participants will crochet in the round to make one small nesting bowl + learn the math to crochet three larger sizes. Border Crossings are explored through connecting physical nesting at home during the pandemic + creating comforting crochet nesting bowls. Further connections cross between one's creative right brain + mathematical left brain while evoking a meditative calm. Crochet stitches used in this workshop are: slip knot, slip stitch, chain, and single crochet.

A Zoom link will be sent to participants 30 minutes before the workshop starts. Participants will need: a crochet hook (sizes from 4mm to 6mm works best), and approximately 3 ounces of worsted weight yarn.
