Here's a little bit of fun for us and April at Christmas time - a mini Christmas Wreath decoration lesson! You'll be covering basic stitches and how to work them around a frame, some decorative edgings and how to use embellishments with your crochet like beading and ribbons. This is a very playful lesson where you'll be able to experiment and make decorations to suit you and your style.
The yarn, pattern and stuffing are all included in the price, as are tea, coffee and biscuits (and chocolates because it's Christmas!). You'll need to come with a selection of hooks - from around 2.5mm to 4.5mm - of course there will be some to buy on the day if you find you haven't got the correct kit.
You will need to have crocheted a little before but not necessarily confidently.
All classes start at 10.30am sharp and finish at 3pm not so sharp... We have a half an hour lunch which I have to be strict about because four hours is a lot of finger work! You'll probably want to bring a lunch as there's not much open here on a Sunday but you might be able to survive on the biscuits.
All classes are taught by the magnificent Eleanor Burke (apart from this one, it's taught by April!), manager here at Knit Nottingham, who is an obsessive knitter, crocheter and yarn lover with the patience of a saint! Kids and young adults are welcome but she does have a penchant for fruity language...
Full payment is to be made in advance. Lessons are non-refundable – please only book if you're are going to be available on that date. In the case of illness please let us know as soon as possible and before the lesson begins and we will endeavour to book you onto an appropriate alternate date but this won't always be possible and we reserve the right not to as the lessons are sold as non-refundable. Lessons are transferable so if you can't come you can send a friend instead (ideally, you'd let me know so I can write that in the diary).
