FASHION AND TEXTILE MUSEUM
Join sustainable knitwear designer Katie Jones and learn how to produce your very own stylish hand crafted cushion. Working in a small group (maximum 10 participants) the first session will be spent learning the basic stitches, how to change colours and how to create a granny square equipping participants with the necessary skills they will need to create their final design. Each participant will receive a 4mm crochet hook and ball of yarn to practice their new found skills between sessions. In the second session students will begin work on their own project under the expert guidance of Katie combining the skills and knowledge acquired into their own cushion cover design. Katie will work with students to create striking colour combinations and compositions perfect for any stylish interior.
Suitable for people with no experience or those who would like to work under the tutelage of Katie Jones.
