Online Workshop 4/11: DIY Latch Hooking For Beginners

This online workshop takes place on Sunday, April 11th,  from 11 AM - 1 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions before the workshop. 

In this introductory workshop, you will learn the basics of DIY latch hooking and create a fun latch hook piece! Learn how to cut your yarn, two different ways to latch hook, and multiple ways to finish your work.

After taking this class, you will have the skills to make your latch hook pieces, from small wall hangings to giant functional rugs. You can use your new skills across the board!

Choose from two booking options:

1. Supply your own materials! You will need at least a 10x10 inch square of lined rug canvas, (1) standard latch hook, and yarn (2-3 skeins of yarn) for this class. *we will email you instructions on making a yarn cutting guide and additional information after class. We suggest medium-weight acrylic yarn.

2. Purchase a complete DIY Latch Hook Kit that includes:

  • lined rug canvas
  • (1) standard latch hook
  • Printed “Valley Lemon” pattern
  • Reusable yarn cutting guide
  • Yarn bundles (colors are as shown in photos)
  • choice of background color (choose at checkout)

Both options need a pair of scissors (not supplied) to cut yarn. Fabric scissors are recommended.

About the instructor:
Birdie is a self-taught fiber artist from South Texas. Decades of crafting kept bringing her back to craft stores and the latch hook kits that graced their shelves. This continuous interest eventually turned into a deep love of DIY latch hooking. A couple of years into creating her own patterns, she realized traditional craft store patterns hadn’t really changed in over twenty years. Thus, BYOY (Bring Your Own Yarn) Latch Hook kits were born! Birdie enjoys all types of fiber arts, playing video games, dancing, and watching movies with her husband Bob and pup, Ramona Yala.
