Crochet Rag Rug and Basket

With the most basic of crochet skills (chain and single crochet stitches) you can make your own fabric rugs, bowls, bags and basket out of any textile you like! You will learn how to wield a jumbo hook, join your strips, and make a variety of shapes of rugs and vessels. Make one for every room in your house, and they make an ideal housewarming gift too! We all have excess textiles floating around our houses, that could be made into beautiful and useful objects and spared from landfills, so why not learn how? Students must know at least chain and single crochet stitches*.

Supplies: Jumbo crochet hook (a few sizes in range of 12-20mm or P/Q/S), 1 or more yards of woven fabric (cotton sheets, yardage or scrap). 1 or more T-shirts to cut up, sharp scissors.

*If you need to learn or brush up on chain and single crochet, Cal has an online class or you can likely find some help on YouTube.

This class will be held at the BALMVILLE GRANGE, at 27 Fostertown Road in Balmville, just across the river from Beacon! Major thanks to the Grange for making this big, open space available to us so that we can have plenty of room to social distance. Each student will have a full table to themselves, and there is a lovely field for us to picnic in as well as a covered outdoor space for lunch should there be rain. Masks will be required in the main classroom at all times. A limited amount of tools and machines will be available for single-person use; please let us know if you anticipate needing to borrow anything.


Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: Students must have basic machine sewing experience and have a few simple projects under their belt.
