Fed up making blankets and shawls? Looking for something different to make with your crochet skills? We have just the course for you: Crochet Bird Roost.
Using a pattern that she designed herself, Jan will teach you how to make a crochet roosting pouch to provide shelter for the little birds in your garden. The pouches are made from Jute twine and can be customised in a variety of ways to suit the needs of your birds.
You will need to be able to crochet some basic stitches before you do this course: double and treble crochet and chains. If you can start your crochet with a ‘magic loop’ that will be helpful, but if not you will learn this skill during the day. If you can make a granny square, you can make a roosting pouch! Come along to our Beginners Crochet Workshop on Sunday 30th October 2016 if you’d like to learn to make a granny square.
Please bring your own 5mm crochet hook.
Tutor: Jan Martin
Jan has a doctorate in ecology and has been interested in conservation and sustainability for a long time, as well as being a scientific editor. She has extensive teaching experience and this workshop is a venture into teaching crafts a topic very close to her heart.
Fee: £35 per person (plus £5 for printed pattern and materials – payable to the tutor on the day)
