About this workshop:

A crocheted triceratops

Crochet is one of the oldest fiber crafts, dating back to the 16th century. In this NHMU workshop presented by Craft Lake City, local fiber artist Kristin Baird of Kit’s Crafts will teach attendees the basics of crochet, including differences between yarns and crochet tools. Through variations of the most basic crochet stitch, participants will have the opportunity to learn the process for creating a small triceratops. All participants will gain the materials, knowledge and pattern to make a crochet dinosaur at the workshop or finish the project at home. No experience is necessary.

She has a passion for learning and has advanced her skills to include lace making and aran cables.
