Learn how to crochet a stylish, sturdy and very useful tote bag. Using a super-chunky yarn made from recycled fabric, it's quick and simple to make.
This course is suitable for absolute beginners, experienced beginners and anyone else who fancies it!
In the first 2.5 hour session you will learn the basic techniques and stitches to get started with crochet, and will be guided through the process of starting to make your tote bag. You'll learn how to hold the yarn, make chain stitches, create treble stitches, and interpret a simple pattern.
During the week between sessions you'll have the opportunity to carry on with your bag at home if you wish, and you'll be given access to some online video tutorials to help you along with the pattern.
In the second 2.5 hour session you'll use your new crochet skills to continue the bag project with assistance, following the pattern, and will learn the techniques needed to finish the bag.
Everyone learns at their own pace, and although it is perfectly feasible that an absolute beginner may complete the tote bag within 5 hours, you should not expect a complete project if this is your first go. You can be assured however that you will have time to make good progress with the project and will be fully equipped with all the skills and experience needed to finish it (with video tutorials and continued help and advice available to you if you get stuck).
The cost of the workshop includes all materials (except for the bag handles). Tea and cookies are also included on both evenings. At the end of the course, you’ll go away with your tote bag, crochet hook, pattern, and your new skills that will carry you forward in your crochet adventures.
A range of bag handles in different colours/materials will be available for you to buy at the workshop, costing from around £5-£8 depending on your choice.
Discount - for those who have previously attended a Kitty Clarke workshop - you will be given a refund of £5 when you book this workshop.
