Festive Social Crafting

 

 

We hope can join us at the craft table to switch off in the run up to Christmas and find time to meet up and craft with friends. This is not a tutor led workshop but more about getting together with others and creating something festive. You will be given a resource pack containing: 3 balls of cotton, 3 greeting cards, 3 patterns and a kit bag. You will need to bring along your size 4 hook or one can be purchased.

As we are getting festive you will receive a complimentary glass of Prosecco and a mince pie,

This week it’s based around crochet so you will need to be able to do the following:

chain, slip stitch, double crochet, half treble, treble crochet, puff stitch (one of the patterns only)

This session is an hour and a half but don’t worry if you don’t get through the three patterns as they are yours to take away with all the material so that you can make more Christmas Greetings Cards at home. The cost of this session is £16.50

So, why not make a date with a friend for a catch up before the madness of Christmas kicks in.
