WORKSHOPS! Ever wanted to crochet and no idea how to start? Or do you know the basics and want to learn different techniques..? I am a contemporary crochet artist and tutor. I will be running a series of workshops through Fri, Sat & Sun 26-28 May at the Alyth Festival.
Each day there is a BEGINNERS workshop 10am – 2pm, advanced in the afternoon 2pm – 4pm. I cater for left-handers. £10 per class.
SPECIALIST WORKSHOPS – £15 per class.
Fri pm – BROOMSTICK CROCHET Worked on a broomstick! This simple method creates loose fabric which has many uses. Why not start with a simple scarf?
Sat pm – HAIRPIN CROCHET Traditionally made on a shell hairpin this work grows quickly.
Sunday pm – AFGHAN CROCHET Working on an elongated hook this work sits somewhere between knitting and crochet. Quick and easy to learn, produces fabric from firm to lacy.

I always encourage learners to keep all their first attempts at learning.
Firstly because people learn a lot from their mistakes, so having the mistake in hand at that “how did I sort this one out last time?”moment really helps jog the memory. Secondly, because it is such an encouragement to see how far you have come.
I asked the students to bring all stages of their work in at the end of the course to show off their progress. Here are some photographs of the work they produced. Thank you for allowing me to use your photos, and my apologies for not getting them posted sooner.
