Many of you might have seen your grandmother or aunts sitting by the hours tatting with a small device called a shuttle. Many of you might have even been shown how do it without success. Evelyn will slow the process down and take the mystery out of making double stitches, rings and chains and soon you will be enjoying this portable craft too. Students will have to be ambidextrous for total success. Those students who already know the basics can move on and learn other techniques like split rings, split chains, self-closing mock rings and lock stitch. Students will also explore the fun of tatting with beads and buttons.
NOTE: Tuition includes a $25 one-time registration fee. If you have already paid the fee, it will be deducted from your total before your card is charged.
