All-Level Amigurumi Workshop // Aquatic Friends - February 5, 12, 19 & 26
with Marissa Lindsey
What is AMIGURUMI? This Japanese word is a blend of the words ami (編) meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi (ぬいぐるみ) a small, stuffed doll.
Join Marissa for this Fun Summer Workshop, and expand your skills making not just one - but a handful of Aquatic-themed crochet creatures; 3 unique octopuses, a squid, and your own customizable jellyfish.
This workshop will be designed like a crochet-a-long; so that no matter which skill level you are at, you can join in, choose where you start, and go at your own pace. But unlike traditional crochet-a-long groups, this Workshop has a built-in-clinic! Marissa will be there to guide you through your journey with individual & group instruction, demonstrations and lots of samples for added inspiration!
Collectively, these tentacled pals cover the full range of skill levels and feature a variety of techniques that are essential to your success with amigurumi crochet. ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME: You just need to know how to single crochet, grab a few hooks and some yarn (see details above). All patterns, stuffing, and plastic safety eyes will be provided at first session.
So come, and join other aspiring Ami creators for this fun-filled, four-session workshop!
