Prerequisites & Homework
You should be familiar with using symbol charts for crochet or knitting (depending on your chosen series). Some knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is very helpful, but not required.
You will have homework! Classes will be recorded and available for a limited time between sessions.
It is strongly recommended that you attend each class session in person, with your camera on. Do not rely on just watching the recordings to learn these skills.
Ideally, you will be able to watch the Zoom class on one screen while having access to your Illustrator app on another. This may be done on two monitors, on one large monitor with a split screen, or on two separate devices.
You will need access to an up-to-date version of Adobe Illustrator for the entire month of the class. You can get a 7-day free trial of Illustrator and after that you can pay for a monthly Illustrator Creative Cloud subscription for about $20/month. You may be eligible for a student and teacher discount, so check around the Adobe site for the best deal.
If you have an older version of Illustrator, that may work, but you may not have access to all the tools I will demonstrate. If you have questions about your software, feel free to email me.
Four-Session Crochet Series includes 8 hours of instruction, handouts, and class recordings (available for a limited time).
Three-Session Knit Series includes 6 hours of instruction, handouts, and class recordings (available for a limited time).
Six-Session Crochet & Knit Series includes 12 hours of instruction, handouts, and class recordings (available for a limited time).
No matter which series you choose, you’re getting one-of-a-kind hands-on, targeted professional instruction that you can’t get anywhere else!
