Crochet Jellyfish


Crochet is a quick, easy, and accessible medium for making squishy 3D models of almost any imaginable object. In this four-hour beginner workshop, we'll learn fundamental crochet stitches, how to read patterns, and good crochet form.

This class is intended as preparation for the Sculptural Crochet workshop offering on 3/23.
