There is also a huge amount of delightful work by other artists and more demonstrations.

There has been a good uptake for my crochet class, so it will run from next week.
Still a couple of places left, in fact most classes still have one or two spaces.

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.
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.

If you would like tuition from me, please get in touch. Whether you are a complete beginner, or wish to learn a specific technique – such as broomstick crochet – I am happy to organise a session, or sessions, to suit. Here are examples of students’ previous work, firstly a beginner’s, then somebody working beyond the basics.

That was a wonderful weekend, sun was shining, and people were out and about. The atmosphere at Trafalgar house was lovely and relaxed. Fellow Artists Liz Petrie, Jilly Henderson, Neil Paterson, Karen Elliot, Maralyn Reid-Wood were delightful company. Thanks to everyone for your generosity. I also came away from the weekend with a new family member who now eats and sleeps for Scotland and is a right loving fur baby! I have named him Happy, cos he is!
Next exhibition NEOS on 10-18 September
Two students came back for a second year, having made good progress on their own. They choose for themselves what they were interested in and want to learn more about.
Here are some more photographs of beginners’ achievements 🙂 Well done!
