A full day’s workshop learning the foundations of the ever popular art of crochet, well-known for the iconic granny square. The basis for many projects including throws (something we all remember from our childhood!) This introductory course will give you a basic understanding of the most commonly used stitches and how to change colours, enabling you to embark on a multitude of projects. After completing this workshop you will be confident in most aspects of this fun and fulfilling craft.
Come along and learn how to crochet … you’ll be hooked!
Learn how to knit with our workshop that is perfect for complete beginners! You’ll learn all the basics: how to knit, purl, put stitches on your needle (cast on), finish up (cast off), change yarn in the middle of your project, weave in your ends, and how to read the information that comes on a ball of yarn. You will then progress to basic increase and decreases, and learn how to read a basic pattern. In the session you’ll be able to knit a basic hat and go home with the skills to knit a scarf.
