Are you interested in picking up a new hobby to kill time on long car trips? Have you ever wanted a way to feel productive while watching hours of tv on end? Well, look no further than this beginner's crochet class! This class will cover the fundamentals of crocheting for people who have never held a crochet hook before! We will be covering making a slip knot, the chain stitch, working in the chain, and eventually building up to single and double crochet.

H4737: All-Female Bands: Music's Unsung Heroines! in Splash Spring 2023 (Apr. 01, 2023)
As women musicians have long been steered toward the role of frontwomen, a disproportionate number are vocalists rather than instrumentalists. Due to gendered notions about acceptable musical performance, all-female bands have occupied a miniscule place in dominant music historiographies, usually regarded as novelty acts. This class seeks to introduce you to a wide array of all-women musical acts throughout the 20th century and beyond. We will start our tour in the 1920s with The Ingenues, then move to the 1930s and 40s which saw all-female bands rising to prominence during World War 2. The 1960s saw an influx of pioneering all-female guitar groups who never got their dues except for a few nods from Riotgrrrl acts decades later. Finally, we will move into the 21st century and consider the place all-female acts occupy in today's musical landscape. All the while, we'll bear in mind the role that race plays on notions of femininity and the consequences this has had for female musicians. I hope you'll join me on this musical journey through time highlighting pioneering women musicians!
