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.

I am an Arts Worker producing contemporary artwork and original freeform crochet, and delivering workshops and courses. This summer I am delivering Tunisian crochet workshops, as this has recently had a resurgence in popularity!
