Workshops & Events
Intro to Contemporary Latch Hook Workshop
Sunday, June 24, 2-4 pm at Firefly Fiber Arts in Chicago
Skill level: any
Attendance: 3 person minimum, 8 person maximum.
Workshop includes: 2 hours of instruction & a kit including everything you need to get your own modern latch hooking off the ground: rug canvas, a latch hooking tool, yarn, and graph paper.
Forget about those latch hooking kits you had as a kid! Learn the mechanics of latch hook, a craft that originated as a rug making technique that has evolved into a beginner-friendly textile art. Rather than use this skill to make a bath mat featuring a clown face, learn how to intuitively and meditatively design your projects to create a stunning & contemporary wall hanging. Project planning, yarn processing, and basic finishing will be covered in this introductory workshop. To attend this workshop, you must sign up on the Firefly website.

It’s a new year, and there’s so much to celebrate! A lot of us have cold temps as a great excuse to spend time hunkered down with needles and hooks, but if you’re looking for a cozy place to warm up in January or February, I’ve got a few ideas.
Learn all about the workshops scheduled for the next few months. Let knitting expert Heidi Gustad of Hands Occupied teach you how to knit from scratch, or take a more advanced class if you’re ready to level up your knitting game.
