Have you been looking to spruce up your walls in 2016? Or perhaps you’re looking to learn a new skill? Well, we’ve got great news for you! We have an awesome new online class available in the Brit + Co Shop.
INTRO TO LATCH HOOK ONLINE CLASS
We partnered up with textile artist and teacher Maryanne Moodie to teach you a beginner course on latch hook. What’s latch hook, you say? It’s a technique of weaving using a hand-held hooked tool to draw loops of yarn through wool to make rugs and the like.
And we’re bringing this old-school technique back in the coolest way. Your class project will include a modern, colorful woven design that you can incorporate into your home decor.
In Maryanne’s Intro to Latch Hook Online Class, you’ll learn how to:
- Sketch out your canvas design and mark off colors
- Weave yarn and master basic latch hook techniques
- Bind the canvas borders and finalize your project
And you’ll walk away with the skills to create wall art, wall hangings and even a custom-designed rug.
MODERN LATCH HOOK KIT
We have all the supplies you’ll need to take the class. Our Modern Latch Hook Kit ($29) includes a 12-by-12-inch canvas, various colors of yarn, a latch hook tool and more! And if you bundle the Intro to Latch Hook Online Class with its companion supply kit, you’ll get 15 percent off your order. You’ll be saving a trip to the supply store AND the bank!
