  • Location: Classroom 2
  • Class fee: $45
  • Materials fee: None. A handout and pattern will be provided.

Using two needles, two colors, and beads makes your tatting POP! In this class, you will learn to execute rings and chains in contrasting colors, each on its own needle; to float rings off a chain; and to add beads by two methods. Students will make a medallion. While some may complete the project in class, all will have the skills and knowledge to do so at home.

Participants should bring two size-5 tatting needles, 2 balls of size-10 crochet thread in contrasting colors, a small package of size-8/0 beads, and a tiny crochet hook (size 12 or a size that will go through the hole in your bead and hook the thread). Students may wish to bring scissors.
