Good news for crochet fans! The lovely Emma Jane who used to teach crochet at the old shop is back! After quite an extended maternity leave, she’s coming back to Emporia to share her crochet skills with anyone that wants to learn a new craft or brush up on their old one.
Giving beginners the low down on how to cast on and cast off, and become confident with creating your very first crochet stitches, this class will ease you gently into handling your hook and yarn, before you start on bigger and more adventurous projects. Emma Jane will not only demonstrate how to get to grips with the brand new stitches, but she’ll also talk you through the common stitch abbreviations so you can start to contemplate reading patterns. Plus, you’ll get technical handouts complete with those abbreviations, stitch reminder diagrams and a basic granny square pattern to try at home once you’re done.
This is a lovely relaxed class with Emma Jane, perfect for complete beginners or those that have attempted to teach themselves. The session costs £30.00 per person and includes your first crochet hook and a ball of yarn to get you started.
The beginner’s crochet classes for the autumn take place on these dates:
10.30am – 12.30pm Wednesday 7th September 2016
