Corticelli Reproduction Crocheted Bag

  • Date: Friday, October 14, 9:00am-3:00pm, 1 Week
  • Tuition: $40
  • Instructor: Linda Daniels

From the past to the present this class will explore the many bag patterns from the Corticelli Crochet Bags and Purses Book #4. These patterns come directly to  us from 1917 and the Corticelli silk mills in Florence. This is an opportunity to recreate an original crocheted bag that “ Every well-dressed woman is interested in…” (from page 9 of the book). Linda will give instruction on how to use today’s materials to reproduce yesterday’s designs. Students must be familiar with basic crochet stitches. Kits and hooks will be available.
