DINKY DOODLERS

Friday 1st March 

'Spring' with Terri Oliver and Jess Smith

Spring is just around the corner and the promise of brighter, warmer days is becoming more of a reality. Today we will celebrate spring and make pictures and cards featuring spring flowers and creatures. Why not take the opportunity to make a lovely mother's day gift whilst you're here? We will also make flowers out of paper and tissue.

We will be working with paint and glue (non toxic) so we strongly advise you and your child wear old clothes.

The sessions are very relaxed and informal, giving you and your child complete freedom to do as much as you like in the time and space we have.

£5 per child which includes unlimited materials.

Suitable for ages 6 months to 3 years

'4 Week Beginners Crochet'  with Emma Wilkinson

Beginners crochet is perfect for both absolute beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills. Starting with basic stitches you will learn about tension, holding the hook, stitch names and keeping your edges straight.

Week two will focus on a mini project to bring all your new skills together, but also introducing decorative edges.

Embellishments in week three will see you making beautiful bows and flowers, whilst concentrating on pattern and chart reading. 

We will also start to think about the type of blanket you would like to make in week four. Once you have started your blanket, it is the perfect project to take home and complete at your leisure.

Materials required throughout the course are a 4mm hook, 5mm hook, scissors, wool needle, and a minimum of three 100g balls of different colour double knitting wool for use on all projects throughout the course.  A high quality acrylic double knitting wool would be preferable to avoid splitting such as Stylecraft Special Double Knitting.  A small selection of hooks and wool will be available to purchase from the tutor for £2 per ball and hooks for £1.50 each.

10:30 - 12:30 £50 per person plus materials during the course if needed. 

Suitable for ages 16+ years
