In this 3-week series, Paulina will introduce you to the art of crocheting by making classic granny squares.

Why granny squares? For starters they’re fun to make and a recent fashion trend. But more importantly, they’re a perfect beginner’s crochet project. No granny-level experience necessary! Or any previous crocheting experience for that matter.

The process of making granny squares:

  • is quite repetitive, meaning you’ll get lots of practice and the opportunity to get really good rather quickly.
  • requires learning only 3 fundamental crochet stitches, including the chain stitch (ch), the double crochet (dc), and the slip stitch (sl st).
  • allows you to insert new stitches into “spaces” rather than other stitches, making it beginner’s friendly.
  • gives you endless possibilities to express your creativity by combining colors or arranging your finished squares into projects ranging from coasters to purses, to sweaters, to giant blankets.

Your workshop ticket includes:

  • All basic crochet supplies including a set of crochet hooks, a selection of yard, and stitch markers
  • 3 weeks of hands-on instruction in a small group, with the option to work in between sessions to make even more progress
  • Printed beginner’s friendly granny square pattern, yours to keep.

This class is suitable for anyone over 14 years old. Space is very limited to ensure that all participants receive plenty of one-on-one guidance.

All workshop participants will receive 10% off any retail purchases made on the day of the classes.

Workshop tickets are non-refundable, because we purchase all supplies ahead of time based on headcount. Thank you for understanding.
