Embossed Crochet - Pacific Petals Square

Sunday 25th June 2017 

1.30 - 4.30pm

Difficulty: Intermediate (you will need to know the crochet basics for this class - working in the round, magic ring, making increases and decreases)

Embossed crochet - it's one of the cool new crochet techniques around at the moment and is easier to do than you might think! 
 
In this class we'll learn how to work the Pacific Petals square, step by step. This textured square can be made with a range of yarn weights, depending on your project. So you can choose something to suit from your stash, or opt for the 'yarn provided' choice for the class. The pattern calls for sport weight yarn but DK yarn would also make a nice thick & chunky square. The main stitches used in this pattern are front and back post stitches. Don't worry if you haven't used these before, with a little tuition they are easy to get the hang of. To make the most of this class why not have a little practice before the day? A great place to brush up on the basics is over on the Moogly blog.
 
What you'll need to bring: the pattern and some yummy treats for afternoon tea will be provided, so you'll only need to bring along your hook and yarn (3.5mm hook with sport weight yarn, or 4mm hook with DK yarn). The provided yarn will be DK weight, so if you choose this option you'll need to bring a 4mm hook.

The Embossed Crochet class is $40 per person (BYO yarn) or $45 (yarn provided) & spaces are limited.

For more info, or to book your place please message me here.

This workshop will be held at the Norfolk St Workshop in Grey Lynn, Auckland.

Rag Rug Workshop 

Sunday 9th April 2017 (Lopdell House)

1-4pm

Re-purpose those old fabric scraps into a fabulous crochet rag rug in this fun workshop. In this class you'll learn tips on creating and joining the fabric strips and a crochet method for constructing your rag rug. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves & have fun with scissors and hooks!

A large hook (for you to keep), the pattern and some fabric will be provided & if you have a particular colour combination in mind it might pay to hit the op shops before the class. Look out for old sheets, duvet covers & fabric scraps. Choose light weight cotton fabrics - the larger the better! Clothing can be used as well, though it will be more fiddly to turn into strips.

As usual there'll be tea/coffee and something yummy to eat as well.

Beginners welcome!

Hoop Mandalas - Summer School Session

Saturday 14th January

10 - 4pm

Come along and kick off the new year with a bang at this special Summer School session at the Norfolk Street Workshop.

In this longer 6 hour class we'll be taking inspiration from the lovely Lucy of Attic24 to create our own magnificent hoop mandalas. Featured as part of the display at this year's Yarndale in the UK, Lucy and friends contributed a collection of hoop mandalas that looked amazing as they hung in the trees. These mandala look fabulous displayed indoors or out. Choose to make a statement by hanging your mandala on a wall at your place, or add colour and movement to your garden by suspending it from a tree outside.

All materials will be provided including a large range of coloured acrylic yarn (it lasts the best outdoors without rotting or fading), a steel hoop, patterns, and some yummy treats for morning & afternoon tea! 

Basic crochet skills are required to be able to make the most of this class ~ a great place to brush up on the basics is over on the Moogly blog.

Mandala patterns will be available to suit a range of abilities, from people new to crochet as well as a few more challenging designs for those wanting to learn some new techniques.
