Course Description: Want to spruce up your home on a budget? Interested in the Zero-Waste Movement? Reduce your own footprint by recycling and finding secondary uses for things that would normally be thrown away. In this course you will learn to crochet a large-scale rug using strips of upcylced fabrics (such as bed sheets, clothing, jeans, etc.). A fun DIY course, that is both rewarding and therapeutic! Trust us, you’ll be hooked!
