In this four-night workshop, you’ll learn simple and intermediate motif crocheting and follow that up by exploring the art of joining motifs together to make shawls, tablecloths, décor items. It’s a heady mix of art and craft and once you have the basics down, you’ll be drunk with creative power! Ann Myhre and Janny Potter teach this course; they’re both expert crocheters and will guide you to success. No beginning students please (students should be comfortable with ch, single, half-double and double crochet stitches). Materials fee of $20 due on the first night of the workshop. Registration is required. Please register online or call 720-865-1206.
