Tatting, an ancient lace making form that dates back to ancient Egypt and China. There’s only one knot — a simple half-hitch made over a thread with a shuttle or a needle. No previous crochet or needlework experience is needed to take and enjoy this beginner-level class.
You will learn about crochet thread sizing and how it affects project size, basic tatting tools and basic shuttle tatting techniques. We will make two small motifs, first a butterfly using a single shuttle technique. Then using a two shuttle technique we’ll make an owl.
Use the new skills to venture out and start making your own projects from earrings to tablecloths.
