About the Course
2 day workshop exploring art crochet techniques with Faye from Unravel & Unwind and Helen of Rainbow Valley Crochet.
What is art crochet?
Similar to free form in that you don't follow a written pattern, but is different because you have some idea of how you want your finished piece to look. Basic crochet knowledge is required.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Art Crochet is similar to Free Form or Scrumbling in that it does not follow a pattern. It is different in that you have an idea of what you want the finished piece to look like. But don‘t be surprised if it doesn't turn out quite the same.
Basic crochet knowledge required.
The weekend is aimed at those who live farther away but don't let that stop you if you are local.
Accommodation information can be requested, there are several good B & B's and AirBNB in the New Romney area of Kent. If you have your own tent or camper I can provide non electric space in the rear garden at £10.00 per night. Just drop me a message.
