About the Course
Crochet Bowl Workshop
Join us for a relaxing day making your own crochet bowl. Using treble stitch our expert tutor Sally will guide you through step by step to help you make your beautiful bowl. This great workshop will open your eyes to the possibilities and uses of crochet to personalise and showcase your newly creative skill. Relax in our cosy converted barn and enjoy trying something new all in the wonderful surroundings of Hanwell Wine Estate, one of Nottinghamshire’s finest vineyard.
This workshop is ideal for those who can already form a treble or create a granny square and are ready to take crochet to the next level.
Although mostly all materials, tools and refreshments are included, we ask that you bring a bowl so that your crochet can be placed over it to set at home. Recommended size is 17 to 21cm in diameter. By the end of your session you will have been inspired and have completed your first lovely bowl, perfect as a centre piece and to pop things in.

About Sally Richards
Sally learned to crochet at around 11 years old, starting with basic granny treble groups. Having then spent 30 years in the textiles industry working with fabrics she discovered there was much more to crochet than making blankets. It wasn’t until she started her own business that she began to explore its full uses and potential. She mastered a variety of stitch patterns, and has completed many products over a number of years.
“I’m still a great lover of crochet blankets but try to find unusual eye-catching stitch patterns and colour combinations to work with, making my work interesting and challenging. My intention when teaching crochet is to pass on a skill that can be utilised throughout life; it offers time to relax, entertain and even to help heal and comfort, as, in common with many handmade crafts, crocheting is a very good ‘mindful’ activity.”’ – Sally Richards
To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 6.
