I’m teaching two workshops at my local Knitting shop in October.
The morning session is Crystal Crochet – you’ll have time to crochet a beautiful bracelet and a pair of earrings. You will need to be able to crochet but the pieces are worked using chain and double crochet so suitable for beginners. There are other designs in the collection that you can then go on to make with your new skills!
The afternoon session is to make a fabulous macramé hanging using a real piece of driftwood, handpicked from the beach in Largo! This is suitable for complete beginners – you will learn how to work lark’s head knot, square knot and half hitch and be able to go on to make all sorts of things from pot hangings to jewellery.
Thursday 23rd 11.45-12.45 Arrow crystal macramé bracelet – learn macramé and how to create a sliding fastener while making a beautiful bracelet with these fabulous metallic arrow shaped crystals from Swarovski. Choose your colours from a selection.
Friday 24th 13.00 – 14.00 Sparkling Crochet Snowflake – learn how to crochet a beautiful snowflake that is perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree or in a window. You will need to know how to crochet at least double and treble crochet but will be guided through working in the round, more advanced double treble etc and reading the pattern.
Sunday26th 13.45 – 14.45 Ribbon flowers – learn to make different ribbon flowers, embellish with Swarovski Crystals and add to a trendy Christmas card. I’ve prepared the card for you – you just need to make the ribbon flowers and glue in place!
