Workshops!

I love to teach crochet workshops! I have taught many over the past few years including at Wool Gathering, yarn stores and will even be teaching on a cruise in January 2019!

I am more than willing to travel to your local yarn store, so let me know if you’d like me to arrange a visit and I’ll see what I can work out.  Or have your yarn store contact me!  I love seeing new places and people.

Here are a few classes I can teach.  But this is by no means all ! I am happy to discuss anything else you’re interested in.  In all classes, I talk about and demonstrate my seamless crochet methods and how to make your crochet look the best it can be.

For Complete Novices

How to crochet a traditional granny square

No crochet experience required.  In this 3 hour class you’ll learn everything you need to know to crochet a granny square, from how to start, how to change colours to how to weave in ends.  I supply the yarn and hook so you only need to bring your enthusiasm.

For those who can crochet but not read a pattern

How to read patterns and charts

You need to know how to crochet at least a traditional granny square.  In this 3 hour class, I teach you how to read a crochet pattern while we make a simple solid granny square with some front post stitches  (a new technique – Yay!).  Then we tackle the classic circle to square using a crochet chart.

The Melbourne Wrap Workshop

Option 1

A quick 1.5 hour workshop where I teach you how to crochet the square that is the basis of the Melbourne Wrap from my book.

Option 2

In this 3 hour workshop, I teach you how to make the square and also how to extend it to make the larger square needed for the Melbourne Wrap.  I will take you through how to work out adjusting the pattern for any yarn you’d like to make it in.

For Intermediate to Experienced Crochet folk

(But really anyone who is willing to have a go and can crochet)

Granny Square Flair Book Workshop

A 3 – 4 hour workshop where I teach you 3-4 patterns from my book (depending on the abilities of the class).  The specific patterns taught can be any from the book.

This is just a small sample of classes I can teach, so if there’s something you’re interested in learning, let me know and I am sure we can come up with a class based around it.
