The Frida rose is a large, vibrant, beautifully variegated variety of rose, named after Frida Kahlo. Kahlo loved flowers--her bold floral crown has become iconic, and she used flowers often as the subject of her paintings.

Roses are considered to be in the height of their beauty in June, which is why they're June's birth flower. Kahlo said "I paint flowers so they will not die," and this workshop is based on that idea--come celebrate June with us by making your own little bouquet of crochet roses to keep forever!

This class is a perfect opportunity for those with basic crochet knowledge who want to take their skills to the next level by learning to crochet in the round. If you'd like to take the class and aren't yet familiar with foundational stitches (i.e. single crochet, double crochet, and chain stitch), consider also signing up for one of our beginning crochet workshops, or schedule a Private Lesson with us beforehand.

Pattern--Frida Roses, on Ravelry--will be provided in class, as will a special variegated Frida rose-colored yarn. Cathy will also supply pin backings and comb clips if you'd prefer to turn your roses into wearable art.

I love art. All of it. My mother was a great artist and taught me so much. I enjoy the process of art. It seems to me that mistakes help us learn. It's the journey AND the destination :)
