We're BACK with more crochet on Weds 25th October, this time we're learning to create a set of lovely crochet coasters, perfect to add a little handmade charm whilst saving your tabletops, or to give as a gift if you can bear to part with them!
Our crochet teacher Cindy is returning to teach us everything she knows, giving group and one-on-one guidance and sharing useful resources for you to take home and continue practicing your new skills. This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, those of you who attended the Intro to Crochet Crafternoon if you need a refresher, or anyone who can already crochet out who fancies a nice sociable evening with some new friends over delicious food and drinks :)
Though our aim will be to start a set of circular crochet coasters, this workshop is really about learning how to crochet, so you open up the possibilities of everything you can make using this technique.
The ability to crochet circles in particular means you could go on to create placemats, piece together circles to make a blanket, or even use a giant crochet hook with upcycled T-Shirt yarn and make a rug!
The coasters we've shown here are gorgeous examples of what you'll learn to create- check out the pic sources below for more inspiration!

We're returning to The Grange Burn Restaurant in Hamilton for this workshop and will be served platters of hot and cold food to graze on while we craft, and the bar will also be open for whatever beverages your heart desires.
The workshop costs $35 and includes food, yarn and tuition, and enough yarn to take home to finish of your set of coasters. Just bring along a size 4 crochet hook (those of you who attended our first session can bring the one we used for our mug cosies) or they're available for around $4 from craft stores.
