We will meet in a trendy cafe located in Melbourne's North. I will introduce you to the tools and fibres where, together, we can decide on your project. If you have previous experience that's great, but if you are a complete novice, just bring your passion and interest, we can still create something beautiful together! The coffee will be amazing, order something yummy from the display and spend our time together chatting, laughing and learning. You will take home a crochet hook, colourful ball of yarn, new skills to practise and warm memories of your time with me. If you choose, you may leave your finished piece with me to add to a collaborative blanket which will be donated to KOGO (www.kogo.org.au)
I'm bringing vintage back! There is always one clever cookie in the family who can lovingly create colourful, warm items to show others how much they care in a practical and tactile fashion. I love practising the age old crafts, learning new patterns and techniques. More than happy to share my skills with the aim of working on collaborative pieces to donate to Melbourne's babes in need. I have been learning to crochet since I was a child. My mother being the first to introduce knitting and crochet among other creative pursuits. Attending a ladies college from 1987 saw me further my knowledge, even spinning the wool before transforming it into a useful beanie. Since having children of my own, I love using my time instead of sitting idly while the kids dance and swim, it's also a great conversation starter.
Tea or coffee, milkshake or lemonade... whatever takes your fancy from the menu!
Starter kit cost is $20AU and includes crochet hook, darning needle and ball of yarn to take home. Pattern books for…
Although the venue may vary, I am a bit of a coffee connoisseur and have a few favourite spots that I know to be cosy and conducive to conversation. If weather permits we could find a shady courtyard.
Bring along your own crochet work if you wish, I love to see what others are making and happy to encourage you to finish!
Indoor café with a delightful menu. We will commune in one of the windows.
