    Beginner Crochet Workshop

    New Beginner Crochet Workshop for Autumn 2023 at Tangled Yarn!

    This workshop is designed to introduce you to the art of crochet and guide you through creating the foundation chain, double crochet stitch through to your first granny square. Whether you're a complete beginner or have some basic crochet skills, this workshop is the perfect starting point to dive into the world of crochet!

    Our experienced instructor, Emma Varnam, will provide step-by-step demonstrations and hands-on guidance to ensure you grasp the concepts easily. You'll learn how to hold the crochet hook and yarn, create a slip knot, and execute essential stitches such as chain, double and treble crochet and slip stitches.

    Our workshop is held over two sessions, each with a two-hour duration. 

    • 1st Session (Wednesday 1 st November) - How to hold the hook and wool, chain stitch, double crochet stitch, creating straight sides and how to edge your work.
    • 2nd Session (Wednesday 8th November) – Learning how treble stitch, creating your first Granny Square both in a solid colour and changing colours.

    All materials are included in the cost of this workshop, as well as light refreshments. We'll use Mrs Moon Plump DK and our favourite crochet hook, Clover Soft Touch. 

    Our workshop will take place in our studio here in Romiley. You'll have the opportunity to meet fellow crochet enthusiasts, share ideas, and exchange tips & tricks. It's a wonderful opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who appreciate the beauty of handmade creations.

    By the end of the workshop, you'll have created your own granny square and be equipped with the skills and knowledge to continue your crochet journey.
