Classes for spring/summer with makedomend
Posted on: April 5, 2011
The menders are now happily settled with their new venue at Drink Shop & Do in Kings Cross and filling the calendar with lots of bookings for hens and classes. We’ve got our pens out and marked in our spring/summer plans for crochet classes but are very happy to take requests for knitting and for simple quilting so don’t hesitate to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in classes in these lovely skills.
Project Crochet – Sunday 22 May, 12-4pm £60 per person – Granny square Bonanza
Just the most perfect way to spend an early spring afternoon, messing about with lots and lots of lovely colour and fabulous patterns and motifs. The menders and makers are massive fans of the simple granny square and it’s so easy to really give this vintage classic a modern twist. The Japanese are the real experts here and their craft books have become a huge cult must-have for all crocheters. In the class, we’ll take a long look at these wonderful patterns and really get to grips with reading patterns from a symbol diagram which does away with those pesky words and allows us to crochet straight from the picture almost! You will have a sympathetic palette of colours to work from to create your own blanket or scarf and to set yourself up with a project to see you through the summer (remember, English summer!!!). All materials and refreshments are included. There is a minimum of 8 for this class and we’ve already got 2 booked and paid for so if you want to join in don’t dawdle!!!
Beginners’ Crochet – Sunday 5 June, 3.30 – 6.30 pm, £35 per person
The classic learn-a-new-skill! We love our beginners’ classes and really enjoy seeing happy crocheters in the making troop out of the door after this class. All materials and refreshments are included.
Intermediate Crochet – Sunday 10 July, 12-3pm, £35 per person
This one is for those troopers who have completed beginners’ crochet (basic stitches and handling hook and yarn) and want to learn more. The devils!! Yes, now you’ve got the basic stitches but what next?? Well, crocheting in the round for starters, and zig-zagging, and clustering. All over the place!! The intention is that after this class you will have all the skills to hand to go and tackle your own patterns and even make a start at designing your own. All materials and refreshments are included.
Granny squares – Sunday 14 August, 12-3pm £35 per person
Similar to our Project Crochet in May with a granny-theme. This is for the improving student who wants to try their hand at crocheting more in the round. Basic granny square patterns and some more challenging ones. You’ll have lots of lovely yarns to play with and maybe even the start of a blanket or scarf before you leave! Materials and refreshments are included.
All classes take place at Drink Shop & Do and can be pre-booked through our Book Online service on the right-hand side of our blog page. Classes must be pre-paid to confirm your place and are subject to our terms and conditions.
