Alyth Creates a 3-day festival 26 – 28 May

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. 



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.
