Update (12/2/2012)

Lily Chin is offering two workshops on February 16, 2013.  Lily Chin is a renowned knit and crochet designer, author and instructor.  She has written 8 books and completed 2 DVDs, and is a regular contributor to many of the major design publications. She is a long-time member of the NYCCG. 

Double-Ended Circular Tunisian Tapestry
Learn this fascinating and new technique of creating a moirĂ© effect in crochet. Create projects without seams. Make pictures or motifs in 2 colors without stranding. This is a ground-breaking, never-before-seen way of using Tunisian employing a short, double-ended hook.  

Proficiency Level: Intermediate.  Please know basic tunisian, including tunisian knit, purl and reverse tunisian stitch.

Supplies:  Must have Clover short double-ended hook beforehand in size of your choice (more than one would be good), article #1305-1308.  At least 2 colors of yarn appropriate to hook size (make sure yarn does not split).

Color Composition, Scale, Stitch and Pattern in 2 Dimensional Design
How do you create enough variations on an afghan in order to fill a book with over 40 different and unique designs? Get a feeling for the selection process when seemingly endless possibilities must be narrowed down.  Find out what works, what doesn’t work and why when creating larger crochet pieces. Making afghans may seem easier than garments because there is no sizing involved, but other sets of problems present themselves.  This is a good art primer since doing afghans freed me up to concentrate on more purely visual aspects rather than on garment-making aspects.  

Proficiency Level: Open to all with an open mind

Supplies: List will be supplied at registration.

Cost for members:  $65 for one class and $125 for two classes.  
Cost for non-members: $75 for one class and $145 for two classes.
