Friday 16 February / 11:30am or 2pm
In honour of Valentine’s Day come and learn how to crochet and make an adorable bespoke heart patch.
Learning the basic crochet stitches, you will work on punched leather to create your very own patch which can be sewn on to any garment – perfecting for covering a pesky hole or giving a brand new lease of life to your favourite piece! Led by luxury knitwear designer Katie Jones, this colourful 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 all materials will be provided.
Why not take the opportunity to come with family or friends (or bring a partner in honour of the occasion!)? Learn together and receive 25% discount on a pair of tickets.
Level: No previous experience is necessary. Suitable for ages 12 and upwards (or younger if accompanied by an adult).
