POSTPONED: Plastic Free July – Crochet your own dish cloth

July 29, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Learn how to crochet your own dish cloth and reduce plastic use in the kitchen.

Most dish cloths are made from plastic, so you’ll want to ditch them if you want to reduce plastic use in the kitchen during Plastic Free July. In this free hands-on workshop you’ll learn simple crochet stitches to create your own dish cloth. Or if you prefer, you can use the same pattern to make a wash cloth or face cloth.

BYO crochet hook if you have one, and some remnant thread if you’d like to use your own. We’ll have crochet hooks you can use in class, and various threads to choose from such as jute and reclaimed cotton.

The facilitator is Gail Russell who is a multimedia crafter ranging from beading, crocheting and knitting to decoupage. She is particularly interested in using recycled and upcycled cotton and yarn to make wash cloths, face scrubbies, dish cloths and shopping bags. She often sells her works under the name of Vintage Sister at the Glebe markets.
