It’s been too long since I sat around a table and turned a bunch of want to be crocheters into fully fledged hookers! But, finally it looks like workshops will be running again this autumn. First up is a two day Crochet Weekender at Lakes and Fells in Renwick, near Penrith. This is a whole weekend of indulgent crochet, designed for beginners, this weekend is also suitable for anyone who wants to refresh their crochet skills and gain some confidence reading patterns and learning new stitches. The venue hosts are the lovely Liam and Lucy and their dog Rhubarb. They’ll keep us well fed and refreshed with tea, coffee and home made goodies throughout the weekend. I can promise you it’s going to be lots of fun. You can find full booking details on the Lakes and Fells website. Please note that accommodation is not included in the booking fee.
Then, in October I’m heading over to Keswick to teach a Sunday morning workshop at the Maker’s Mill, an amazing venue and craft space. I’ll show you how to make your own T shirt yarn and you’ll learn how to make a simple crochet basket of any size and using any yarn. This is aimed at beginners, but if you want to refresh your skills or just have a fun day out with other crocheters you’ll be very welcome.
More dates are coming soon and hopefully lots of bookings for 2022. It’s been a bumpy and unpredictable year, but rest assured all the venues I work with have done their best to provide a welcoming work space and have refund / rebook policies in place if Pandemic guidance changes. Believe me, after a year of shielding I’m as keen as anyone to get back to workshops, but I understand the need to keep everyone safe and feeling comfortable with their surroundings.
Everything you need is provided on the day and I’ll have books, wool, hooks and crochet kits for sale too. I’m really looking forward to welcoming back some familiar faces and meeting new crocheters, so pop pver to the relevant venue for full prices and booking details.
