You will learn how to create a slip knot, create chain stitches, crochet a flat circle and use double crochet stitches to create a basket measuring approximately 15cm by 12cm. You will also learn how to read a basic crochet pattern meaning you can tackle other projects when you get home (think cosy handwarmers, scarves, baby blankets).
You will have a choice of colours and will be provided with everything you need, including a giant crochet hook to take home so that you make more baskets for your friends and family.
We curate talented designers to offer you trend led accessories that you can make yourself. This is a brilliant way to spend an evening with friends making something useful, unique and joyful.
Maiden Aunt evenings are a world away from the classes you did at school. You're encouraged to talk to each other, doodle, daydream and even enjoy a drink (no pranks on the teacher though, please). Mistakes are embraced as part of the creative process and there's no such thing as a fail. We're all about creating a social experience so you get extra marks for swapping hints and tips, and telling each other how awesome the things they are making are. We love it when people continue the crafter party on socials and when there's some good chat between the different groups.
We want people to experience the joy of making things even when they don't think of themselves as creative. We love it when people go home and keep making so we offer crafts that are suitable for all levels and that don't require any special skills, tools or materials. You will also be provided with written instructions, templates and a list of trusted suppliers.

About your host, Maiden Aunt
Maiden Aunt is dedicated to making the mindfulness and delight of craft accessible to all. We curate the best designs allowing you to make trend-led fashion and home accessories that are personal, unique and joyful.
Maiden Aunt is creating a collective experience in person and over social media to share our crafty discoveries as widely as possible. We want to create a positive space for making and socialising.
Each month, we pick one item and craft and work with independent designers to develop workshops in that month that will be suitable for all abilities. If you can’t make it or want to organise your own event, there will also be a corresponding all you need kit. We can then continue the conversation by sharing pictures and stories of our own versions of the make.
You benefit from fresh, creative ideas. Independent designers and businesses benefit from showcasing to customers in a different context.
If you have any questions, please contact us using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
You will get everything you need to make this including materials, tools and instructions. You will also get your own giant crochet hook to take home. A selection of t-shirt yarn in different colours will be available on the day but if you have any special requests then please get in touch and I will try to accommodate them.
