Next Steps! Crochet Workshop
June 29 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm£45 – £70
A workshop aimed at participants that have previously attended a Fabrications Beginners’ Crochet workshop (or similar) or those of you with basic crochet skills, that now feel secure in making slip knot, chain, double crochet, treble crochet and wish to progress to create beautiful crochet products.
Tone Ward, from Ull Nordic Craft, is an expert in Scandinavian knitting and crocheting. She started clicking the needles in Norway as a small girl and hasn’t looked back since. She is an enthusiastic follower of ‘Hygge’ and practices this ‘philosophy for living’ in all areas of her life. An experienced workshop leader, Tone can guide you with practical help and tips for creating beautiful handmade garments, bags, scarfs and soft furnishings. Let Tone show you how to live like a Scandinavian! (And develop your crochet skills!)
The day is divided into 2 halves, attend just the morning or we recommend the full day to really advance your skills! (We offer a discount when booking the full day)
Format for the Workshop:
MORNING (11am – 1.30pm): You will be making two (or more) classic granny squares by learning the magic circle, changing colours, how to join two crochet pieces together and how to read a crochet pattern.
AFTERNOON (2.30 – 5pm): You will continue making different motifs granny squares by learning the ‘bobble stitch’ & ‘puff stitch’ and introduce them into your work. You will also learn how to crochet Romanian Cord.
Towards the end of the day, you will be shown how you can turn your granny squares’ into different products -from a coin purse to a tote bag, cushions, blankets and even a sweater!
INCLUDED: 2 x 100g balls of chunky yarn (2 different colours) & 10mm ‘Knit Pro’ crochet hook. Instruction / pattern sheet.
PRICE: £45 (1/2 day) or £70 (full day)
