About the course:
This session is ideal for complete beginners and also improvers. Melanie can help you learn the basics of crochet, such as how to hold your hook and yarn comfortably, how to make a chain, a loop and double crochet. Or perhaps you are ready to take the next steps, such as reading a pattern and beginning your first crochet project. We have plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits to keep the grey matter alert!
About your Teacher:
Melanie is a professional fibre artist who produces and sells unique hand-spun yarns, as well as crocheted, knitted and hand-dyed garments, through her business ‘Spiral Spin’ at Draper’s Yard. She has perfected her craft following years of experience in weaving, knitting, crocheting and spinning, backed up by formal studies in fine art, at which time wood block printing was her passion. These days you’re most likely to find Melanie behind her faithful spinning wheel ‘Spiral’ unless you’re lucky enough to be joining her in one of her fantastic workshops!
Maximum class size of 8.
For beginners - you need no experience whatsoever. You can have a stab at making granny squares, circles or flowers, which can be made into brooches, or used to embellish hats, bags and anything else which looks like it needs a crocheted flower!
For improvers - come and join the session with or without a project on the go. Melanie can help you choose a project to suit the stage you are at.
Basic materials are included, but if you would like to buy your own, we have a lovely selection available in our shop.
