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 Р2pm, advanced in the afternoon 2pm Р4pm. I cater for left-handers. £10 per class. 

 

SPECIALIST WORKSHOPS Р£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.

Fun A Day Dundee 2 January 2017

Well, I’m a crochet tutor! So the first thing I saw when I looked at this shed snakeskin was a beautiful lacy crochet pattern. Don’t know quite how it would turn out or what I might use it for. Maybe give this a try out sometime and see if it can be made into a working pattern. Probably would need a more delicate name than Boa’s Belly Stitch though!

Fun A Day 1 January 2017

Last night somebody handed me an strange object (as they do on Hogmanay) and said “What could¬†you make from this? ¬†Take it away and see what you can do with it.”

So my Fun A day project is going to be – working out what I can do with the shed skin from a six foot boa constrictor.

First take photographs of¬†it in all it’s complex beauty. Here are four of them.
