We love wool out here in the Western District, and it's time we again tackled the super easy, super portable and versatile craft of crochet, making lovely little woollen bowls!
Our crochet guru Cindy is back to show us with her giant yarn and hooks how to crochet your very own soft handmade bowl, perfect for a catch-all dish or to wrap around candles, plants or dishes.
We'll again settle in to what has become our crochet corner- The Grange Restaurant at 142 Ballarat Road, Hamilton.
The workshop is $35 per person which includes platters of hot and cold finger food to share, wool and tuition, just bring along a size 4 crochet hook (around $4 in craft shops and discount stores).
If you want a wine, a cuppa or another drink of your choice then the bar is open for all your heart's desires (well, within reason).
This workshop is suitable for beginners, so even if you wouldn't know your crochet hook from your knitting needle you can come along and learn the basics.
If you can already crochet and just want to do so alongside a bunch of lovely locals then you're welcome to join in the fun too!
Once you have mastered the skill you can use circular crochet to create anything from coasters and placemats to rugs and blankets- be inspired by our Crochet Coasters blog post HERE and you can see pics from a previous crochet crafternoon HERE! :)
Unfortunately I'm away for this one (in Europe!) but Cindy will handle bookings, and as long as you've told Cindy you're coming and she's emailed you back to confirm there's space for you then you can pay cash on the night :)
To book, email Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org and await your response!
