Led by luxury knitwear designer Katie Jones, this 1.5-hour workshop will teach you the basics of crochet. Aimed at beginners, the class is intended to be a fun and friendly introduction that will give you a basic understanding of the most commonly used stitches and how to change colours. Full instructions and a hook are provided.
Katie Jones, who is championed by style icon Susie Bubble, will advise on the uses of crochet in contemporary fashion and how she mixes tone, texture and stitch techniques in her own work.
