Ukrainian Credit Union Speakers’ Corner: Garlic Art Knitting & Crochet Workshops (4-4:45PM) Sign up here

Visitors to the Toronto Garlic Festival Garlic Art Workshop receive free professional instruction – including supplies – to create their own knitted or crocheted garlic-shaped bulb to take home.   Knitting Maven Cookie Roscoe will head the knitting class while Crochet King Jacob Goldfarb will share his crochet skills in the crochet class. Knitting class skill level required: “in the round.”  Crochet class skill level required: beginner.  Workshops are free with $5 Admission to the Festival. Sign up at the online form below to confirm your spot.

Cookie Roscoe has been knitting since mittens came into fashion. Fascinated by knitted food she perfected the process to knit a garlic bulb for the 3rd annual Garlic Festival, but required the assistance of superstar knitter Beryl Tsang to write the pattern for this year’s fest.

Jacob Goldfarb picked up crocheting in the winter of 2016 and since that time has barely put down his hooks. He likes to make winter clothing, but focuses mostly on amigurumi and blanket designs.
