3 hour workshop
Amigurumi is the japanese art of crochet stuffed toys and dolls, that are made by working in the round to create 3-dimensional shapes.
This is a beginner/intermediate class as although it is a simple technique, it can be a bit tricky at first. Absolute beginners are welcome, but it is recommended that you have a little experience.
The class will begin by spending the first hour going over the basics to get everyone of any experience up and running. So if you are a beginner you should be able to get fully started on your project by the end of the lesson. And if you are already are a competent crocheter, then we can go over some more advanced amigurumi techniques together during the time.
Some material and hooks will be provided for you to use while you practice the stitches, and then a 10% discount in the shop for you to get started on your project!
There will also be a variety of teas and biscuits on hand for sustenance!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, Sanna King
Sanna King is the resident crochet teacher at Knit With Attitude in Stoke Newington.
Sanna might not have picked up much Finnish from her mum, but she definitely picked up her crafty skills! She was taught how to crochet at an early age, but then it got a little lost amongst all the other making skills she was developing over the years at school, college and in her freelance career. When she re-discovered crochet about 15 years ago, she re-ignited a passion for it and was glad to see her hands had not forgotten how to do it!
"Crochet is such an intuitive craft, and even if you are relatively new to it, you can still create some amazing things, that look so much more complicated than they actually are to make!"
Sanna has been teaching and passing on her skills for several years now, and especially enjoys teaching absolute beginners, or people who have tried to learn it before, but have previously been unsuccessful.
" I love that moment when you can see that somebody has finally 'got it' especially if they were struggling at first! It is so rewarding! Although it's also really nice teaching people who pick it up easily or have a natural talent for it too!"
Most of Sanna's classes are designed to teach you all the basics of crochet that you need to know, and the skills to read and understand patterns. Then she will get you feeling confident enough to head off in whichever direction you wish to go with it, depending on where you want your crochet journey to take you.
"Whether you like to follow a pattern or prefer to freestyle and make something totally unique, once you have cracked the basics of crochet, the world is your crafty oyster!"
