What you'll learn in this beginner crochet class:

Do you know a little bit about crochet but are bored with the limitations of flat surfaces? Take Sculptural Crochet and learn how to build spaces and forms in 3D.

Instead of focusing on an end product, this 4-session class will focus on how taking risks and giving ourselves the freedom to "just play" opens up possibilities in our creative practice.

Prerequisite: Students should have some basic knowledge of crochet. Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. Our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime!

Required Materials: Students must supply their own needles, hooks and yarn. The instructor will contact you about specific materials necessary.

Attended: Leather Apparel Sewing

I thought the teacher was great and overall it was a good experience. I was disappointed in the facilities. It's not ideal to sew leather on home sewing machines, especially ones that aren't in proper working condition. Students had to share sewing machines.

Attended: Leather Working

The instructor Cat was very informative and gave excellent instruction and problem solving in leather working. We were able to learn several techniques that were applicable in many ways in a short amount of time. It would be helpful if there was the next level of class offered after this - an intermediate to advanced to work on techniques and to learn more solutions.

Attended: Felting 101 with STATE

A fabulous course! Adrienne was so helpful, patient, encouraging, inspiring. She showed us multiple techniques and we each made 4 different items, like table runners, kindle covers, bowls, bags, and wall hangings. She even helped me do a nuno felted runner when I asked for it, even though she didn't plan on doing any nuno felting. She provided all the materials and the workspace was roomy and comfortable. It was a great fun way to spend the weekend. Many thanks Adrienne, Marta

Attended: Leather Working - Weekend Intensive

This course was really fantastic. I learned a lot of skills is such a short amount of time and I really enjoyed every second of it. Kat, the instructor, is phenomenal. She gave individualized attention to each person and really was knowledgable and helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to make small leather goods, or just wants to learn a new skill.

Attended: Leather Working - Weekend Intensive

The class was great! We learned lots of great techniques and each had as much one-on-one time with Kat (the teacher) as we needed. We were also able to modify the preplanned projects to fit our preferences. I came out of the class with three piece I actually like so I would say it was a success. If you are signing up (which you should) I would recommend bringing a couple yards of leather, as there was a limited supply of large pieces. All leather-working tools were provided as well as a list of places to get everything we need to do it ourselves in the future.
