What will we cover?

Filet Crochet can be used in all sorts of projects, from table runners, decorative edgings and wall hangings to shawls and clothing.

 

Come and learn all the tricks of the trade from Eleonora, aka Coastal Crochet.  Eleonora will show you how to create designs on paper, and then transfer them into the filet crochet. You’ll be encouraged to create your own individual designs and will create a unique wall hanging. Not feeling creative? Don’t worry – Eleanora will have lots of ideas to hand. 

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work. 

 

You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can. 

 

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

This workshop is suitable for advanced beginners. You will need to have a basic understanding of crochet and be able to do chains and treble stitches. 

 

 

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

Please bring your own choice of yarn and hooks to the workshop. Cotton works best for filet crochet. 

 

You can use fine thread cottons with a small 1mm or 2mm hook or thicker cottons (4-ply or DK weight) with a 3 or 4mm hook.

 

Why not bring a variety of yarns to experiment with different sizes and results?

 

What will I take home with me?

You’ll leave with your wall hanging and the confidence to create more filet crochet designs.

 

Refreshments

Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.
