Learn the nitty-gritty of granny knits!

In this art workshop lead by artist Angela Rossitto, you will learn the fundamental skills of crochet, and how the humble crocheted 'granny square' can be the basis for many hand-made projects including bedspreads, scarves, ponchos and pot-holders.

Angela will teach you the slip knot and chain crochet techniques so you can build square upon square. You will learn how to visualise and design a project from start to finish.

Please bring along:
> 2-5 different colours of 8 ply wool
> A set of darning knitting needles
> A 3.5mm to 4mm crochet hook

P.S: If you're not sure that you want to fully commit, we'll provide you with some wool and needles so you can have a go anyway.
