INTRODUCTION TO SCULPTURAL CROCHET with Samuel Buelow

April 20, 2019
12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Students will learn the basic principles of sculptural crochet: how to make basic shapes, how to connect those shapes to make figures, and how to conceptualize the project in order to move from 2D images to 3D forms. We will cover increasing and decreasing stitches, crocheting in the round, crocheting through front and back loops, and other techniques used to create body and texture. (This is an advanced beginners class. Students must know chain stitch and single crochet.)

Materials students should provide: Size E  or F crochet hook (crochet hooks in additional sizes would also be helpful).

Samuel Buelow is a fiber artist who has worked in many forms (knitting, weaving, etc.) but his heart is in sculptural crochet and needle felting.  He has had several pieces displayed at Fuller Lodge Art Center in Los Alamos, NM, and at Albuquerque Pride.  He is a cultural anthropologist by training and has worked in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, whose amazing felt traditions continue to inspire him.
