Crafty Culture (Spring 2020)

This is a friendly weekly drop in session where everybody is welcome! You can either do your own things or learn some basic crochet skills. Creations can include rag rugs, knitted scarf, embroidery, jeweller, pattern cutting – the list goes on! A small amount of materials will be available such as wool and fabric.

Tutor: Barbara

Barbara Touati-Evans is a visual artist and art practitioner whose main practise is crochet. She is interested in clashing the traditionally homely and female craft of crochet with traditionally cold and male topics such as mathematics and neuroscience, thus colliding different worlds and exploring different types of experiences for the audience. As an art practitioner, she is interested in supporting everybody develop creatively and is keen to learn from the people she works with.

Barbara believes there is something very motivating and soothing about crafting together. It makes people less lonely and it is very inspiring to see what other people are making. This class is great if you want to learn basic crochet skills.
