Contact course provider
About the Course
Learn Amigurumi crochet in a day - no experience required as we will be starting the day by making a basic crochet 'Granny square' sample using the crochet techniques which we require to then carry on to make a small Amigurumi animal.
So what is Amigurumi? This is the art of creating a 3D shaped item using crochet or knitting. It is perfect for making toys, characters, and even vases or baskets from wool, cotton, or synthetic wools.
And it's very satisfying as well as fun to see your item take shape - literally!
