Course
Description

Learn the cosy art of crochet in this relaxing, two-session workshop. The perfect way to unwind, increase mindfulness and get creative. The repetitive motion of crochet can help calm the mind. It’s fun, versatile and you will pick it up in no time.

Use a hook and yarn to practice basic stitches and learn their pattern abbreviations. Understand stitch tension and how different sized hooks & stitches can benefit your creation.

Once you have mastered these techniques, you will put your new skills into action by creating your very own crochet table runner (or option to choose whatever inspires you e.g. granny square rug, scarf).

This brilliant course is suitable for beginners, or anyone wanting to refresh their current skills in this craft.

This course runs for two sessions, over two consecutive weeks at our Lismore campus.

TRAINER

Jenny Du Frocq is many years into her crochet journey and recently hosted a series of hugely successful introduction to crochet courses for ACE in Lismore. What started as a crafting hobby about five years ago has bloomed into a crochet business with more than 500 handcrafted treasures sold online.

“I got into crochet as a mindfulness activity that could support my wellbeing, an activity that could engage the mind and body. This is how I fell in love with the ‘Art of Crochet’, crafting many items, giving them to friends and family, then selling the items at local craft markets and now online.

I take my crochet projects almost everywhere with me, it is so versatile and something I do every day. It would be fair to say I am hooked on crochet; I am always excited to think about and anticipate the next project I will undertake. Sometimes I do not know what this will be, it is a work in progress, revealed by the end product”.
