At Emily's in Truro, 20 River Street, Truro, Cornwall TR1 2SQ
Learn how to crochet a 'granny style' circular cushion. Using a super-chunky yarn made from recycled cotton fabric, it's quick and satisfying to make.
This course is suitable for absolute beginners, experienced beginners and confident crocheters.
In the first 2.5 hour session you will learn the basic techniques and stitches to get started with the project, and will be guided step-by-step through the process of making your circle cushion. You'll learn how to hold the yarn, to make chains and treble stitches, work in the round, make increases, and interpret a simple pattern.
During the week between sessions you'll have the opportunity to carry on with your cushion 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 will continue the cushion project with assistance, following the pattern, and will learn the techniques needed to finish the cushion.
Everyone learns at their own pace, and although it is perfectly feasible that you may complete the cushion within 5 hours, you should not expect a complete project if you are still learning the skills. 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 course includes all materials (except for the cushion pad inner). Tea and cookies are also included on both evenings. At the end of the course, you’ll go away with your cushion, crochet hook, pattern, and your new skills that will carry you forward in your crochet adventures.
12 inch round cushion pads will be available for you to buy on the second evening.
