What you will do
6 hour workshop
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.
The class is taught by Tone Ward, from Ull Nordic Craft, 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!)
Format for the Day:
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.
LUNCH BREAK (Enjoy the delights on offer in Broadway Market)
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 oversized tote bag, cushions, blankets and even a sweater!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
