Eventbrite - Crochet with Plarn (Plastic Yarn)

Led by staff of CGFC & The I.D.E.A. Store, and Volunteers

Location: The I.D.E.A. Store, 28 E. Springfield Avenue​, Champaign 

Saturday, March 15th, 5:30-7:30 pm

$10 owners, non-owners, and staff*

Learn how to re-purpose plastic shopping bags into a sturdy crocheted market tote that you can finish in time for farmers market season. Don't know how to crochet? No problem--we'll teach you. We'll also have plenty of "plarn" a.k.a. plastic bag yarn on hand to get you on your way, and show you how to cut more so you can use up your own plastic bag stash. You don't have to have a crochet hook to participate, but if you want to grab your own before class, look for J or larger, even M. Big needles help slash the time on this project. Check The I.D.E.A. Store first for crochet hooks, as they are available in a variety of sizes, and are only $1.

Note: This is a dual workshop with The I.D.E.A. Store. You can sign up for this workshop OR the weekend workshop at Common Ground, which ever works best with your schedule. If you think you might need extra help, start your project at The I.D.E.A. Store workshop and use your ticket to get additional help at the Saturday workshop at Common Ground.

Type of Class: Hands-On Crafting

As always, if you prefer, you may sign up in person with our Front of House staff at the registers in the store.​

*Because this is a joint workshop with the I.D.E.A. Store, we are not able to offer discounted tickets for staff and owners. If you need a Food For All Scholarship ticket, please inquire about the Saturday class.

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, Mar 15th 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
