Crochet Workshop: Patterns and Charts

For the adventurous beginner, this three hour workshop will focus on decoding both written patterns and crochet charts. We'll be making fun little appliqués - flowers, hearts, decorative granny squares - using different crochet techniques. The workshop will show you how a written pattern is translated into a drawn chart, giving you the confidence to begin using crochet patterns of both types.

Please bring along any samples of crochet you've made so we can have a look as a group, and don't forget to bring your crochet hooks! If you don't have any, don't worry - all materials will be provided. Refreshments will also be provided during a short break.

I look forward to seeing you at the next workshop!

Crochet Workshop: An Introduction to Crochet Techniques and Materials

This three hour workshops is aimed at beginners, or those looking for a refresher in crochet materials, techniques and terminology. We'll be briefly looking at the history of crochet, and how it has developed and diversified in recent years. I'll be bringing a variety of crocheted items, from apparel to amigurumi, that we can look at and discuss with the aim of understanding the stitches and how they are used. I will also have a range of different types of crochet hook for you to try, and lots of different yarn types to experiment with. Some pieces of flat and in-the-round crochet that have been started will be available, but I'll also be able to teach you how to begin different styles of crochet. All materials are included, but please bring along any pieces of crochet you've done for everyone to have a look at! There will be a 20-30 minute break with refreshments provided.

Looking forward to seeing you at the workshop!
