Event description

Description

Join crochet designer Nicki Merrall in the garden at The Refectory Table to be inspired by the colours of summer and develop your skill in choosing and using yarn colours for your own projects.

Nicki will share the techniques used by crochet designers to develop colour palettes, and the use of colour in a variety of stitch patterns ranging from simple stitches patterns to waves and chevrons.

She'll guide you as you use these techniques to develop your own palettes from inspirational images and create beautiful crocheted swatches.

You will leave with greater confidence in choosing and using yarn colours for your own projects, and knowing how to work a variety of stitch patterns which are easily adapted to create bags, blankets, cushions, scarves and throws.

Venue & What's Included

The workshop includes:

  • Designer’s ‘show and tell’ using Nicki's own designs, swatches and crochet books.
  • Advice on developing your swatches into finished items.
  • All materials, tools, a worksheet explaining techniques.
  • You’ll be well looked after with refreshments all day, a home cooked two-course lunch (we cater to all dietary needs) and home baked cake before the final session.

This workshop is for a maximum of 8 people so you get lots of time with Nicki throughout the day, as well as sharing a lovely sociable lunch. Suitable for anyone who can double and treble crochet (UK terms) and crochet a granny square.

It's run 10am - 4.00pm by The Refectory Table at a friendly and spacious house with a beautiful garden (that opens to the public for the National Gardens Scheme) in Loughborough, Leicestershire. Full details and directions will be sent to you upon booking.

Get in touch if you have any questions.
