I have had a lovely week. Saturday was Learn to Crochet in a Day at Maes Mwldan. Five newbies, who hadn’t even held a crochet hook before, managed to learn all the basics and went home with a flower brooch.
Then on Monday I tried out a new workshop. We made crochet rag rugs out of duvet covers and sheets. We spent the morning cutting them into strips and the afternoon making a start on the rug. The Small World Theatre dance studio in Cardigan was the perfect venue for the workshop. It is a circular room with lots of natural light and there was plenty of room for the eight participants.
The workshop included a hand turned 15mm crochet hook, which everyone loved. It was great to have something so unique to use. They were made by Les, who is an amazingly talented local wood crafter.
It was a fab day and everyone had a lot of fun – including me!
Don’t forget – if you are interested in learning to crochet and you live in West Wales, then get in touch and come along to one of my workshops.
