The ultra portable, easy-to-learn cousin of knitting; our beginning crochet class is a great way to take up this retro hobby. Instructor Christa Rogers will share tips, techniques and her love of this fiber craft in this 3-part workshop. And once you have the basics down, Christa will share a handful of great patterns for you to choose from for your first project. This workshop will also be a great foundation for our advanced class coming up this summer – Hyperbolic Crochet – a fantastic approach to crochet that leads to very sculptural pieces.

The intertwined lives of the women of four families spanning multiple generations is told in dramatic vignettes that move through time and from woman to woman, mother to daughter. Based on Amy Tan’s spectacular book of the same name, The Joy Luck Club has inspiration, humor and even some tears. It’s a joyful and complicated story – worth watching and even re-watching.
