Beaded Crochet Workshop with Jane Crowfoot
Saturday 4 April - 10.30 am to 4:30 pm
Beads add a fabulous touch to crochet fabrics and edgings. You can use them as a sparkling detail on a lace edge or to form a pattern within your crochet work. Adding beads to your crochet projects is far easier than you think and is a technique that will make you want to put beads into everything you do in future!
Jane will show you how to thread beads onto your yarn, how to add bead to a double and treble stitch and she will also show you her brand new technique – how to add a bead into a half treble stitch on the right side of the work!
- A selection of crochet hook sizes,
- pen/ pencil,
- a small sewing kit including scissors, a knitters sewing needle, and a fine sewing needle and thread.
Skills needed: Participants need to know how to work basic stitches and how to read a written crochet pattern.
The cost is £90 per student and includes yarn, beads and light refreshments.
A minimum of 4 students are required for the course to go ahead.
There will be a 30 minute break for lunch and while there are several eating options in the area you may wish to bring something with you as there isn’t much time.
Jane Crowfoot has always had a love for yarn and all things crafty and attributes her ‘crochet gene’ to her Great Grandmother, Alice, who was seldom seen without a crochet hook in her hand and a few granny squares upon her lap.
Jane has worked as a freelance designer and design consultant for the past 20 years and has worked closely with Debbie Bliss, Rowan Yarns, Jamieson’s Of Shetland and Stylecraft. Although an accomplished knitter, Jane has a passion for crochet and was recently voted the UK’s Craft Influencer of the Year in the British Craft Awards.
