Join us for a morning of crochet calm in the beautiful Lakeside Room at Bodenham Arboretum.
Improve your crochet skills beyond granny squares and learn how to hook up a duo of scented squashes using simple crochet stitches!
* Two hour workshop to improve your crochet skills.
* A choice of chunky yarn.
* Pattern, materials and pure essential oil to scent your project. Make one / take one – work at your own pace and take away anything you need to complete your project at home if you’d prefer.

We’ll be using chunky, soft and gentle on the fingers yarn in a variety of autumnal shades to hook your pumpkins. Choose from a palette of natural hues to suit every taste.
This project can be made from start to finish in an evening. You’ll get a pattern, all materials and support with pattern reading during the workshop. I have crochet hooks to lend during the session or to purchase. We’ll be working in the range of 6 mm to 10 mm hooks.
