Featured ‘Big Read’ Online Class: Crochet with Plastic Bags

In Kao Kalia Yang’s memoir, her grandmother makes yarn with plastic bags.  Upcycle your plastic grocery bags into something useful and surprisingly beautiful!  Cara Corey combines her interest in design and fiber arts with a focus on sustainable crafts in this class to turn plastic bags into plastic yarn – “plarn”. She’ll guide you in the creation of a simple storage basket, but along the way you’ll learn of other easy crochet projects where you can feel good about re-using those plastic bags.  This online class is Saturday, June 5, part of the St. Croix Valley Big Read.
