Yarn Craft – Knitting, Felting & Crochet

 Yarn Craft –   Knitting, Felting & Crochet – a bit more!

 

8 Weeks Tuesday 7.00pm to 9.00pm

This course gives you an insight into some of our traditional yarn crafts that have been practiced  in our schools and households for decades.  As we have entered the age of technology some of the traditional pastimes are becoming lost and unknown to younger generations.

This course is suited for those who have begun to knit or crochet and would like to learn more skills.

We will be covering the skills described below, while working on patterns. You can bring your own project or I will have some projects that you could take on.*

Your project, if you are bringing your own, should include some increasing, decreasing and something a little challenging for yourself.

If there are other things that you want to learn that are not listed on the outline, please do mention to me on the first evening and I can incorporate them into the course as we progress.

Any questions or queries about the course outline, or if there is anything you would like added please don’t hesitate to contact me on carolinekelly@knittingforall.com
