Child + Parent Crochet Basket + Indigo Workshop October 27th
Take this class to learn and make with your son or daughter! Design, make, and dye your own basket!
This special workshop is taught by crochet artist Taryn Urushido and natural dye artist Maki Teshima from Tomorrow Is Always New in each of their art spaces, both located at Brooklyn Art Studios in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
The first half of the class will be crocheting with Taryn. 95% of her students have never crocheted before and everyone completes the project with their own designs incorporated. Each basket is made of a leather base and natural cotton rope. Depending on your time and pace, you may create a bag with handles or cross-body strap.
Next, everyone will be able to explore Maki's world of natural dyes and techniques. An indigo vat will be brewing and ready to dip your basket as you wish- you can design your bag with an indigo handle, or an all-over shade of blue! Your end basket can be adorned with natural or indigo dyed wood beads as you wish.
