Crochet Club Workshop

I am excited to tell you that I will be tutoring a dedicated Crochet Club workshop at Rowan's Mill in Holmfirth which will take place on March 12th and 13th 2011. I am very lucky that the lovely (and very talented with a crochet hook) Erica Pask will be my assistant.

The inspiration behind the Crochet Club 2011 panel is Art Deco and 1950s design and it is made up of both conventional and contemporary crochet pieces which, when put together, create a stunning piece. Techniques used include beading, colour work, textural crochet such as bobbles and wave/chevron patterns.

This workshop offers Crochet Club 2011 members and their friends the chance to work through the project within the lovely surroundings of Rowan’s Mill. Some of you may wish to use the workshop as a chance to catch up whereas others may like to have a sneak preview of the techniques which will be used over the subsequent months.

Participants are asked to bring along their project so far to work on over the course of the weekend, however yarn and beads will also be provided to be used to practice new techniques. Participants who are not members of the crochet club are more than welcome to attend. To see more details on line click here

I have had lots of requests for workshops which focus on the project and am in the throws of arranging a few more so keep your eye on the blog for more information.
