Venue: Little Pentre Organic Eco Retreats in the Garden Studio

You will arrive to a crackling log fire, a mug of hot spiced apple and a cosy space, to learn how to make gorgeous vintage style crochet flower blankets with Lea of Wild Creative Textiles.
At lunch time, gather around the large farmhouse table and enjoy a bowl of hot organic homemade soup & local crusty bread.
This cosy autumn workshop is a perfect day out for local visitors or retreat for residential B&B guests.

Start a new autumn crochet project, in the beautiful surroundings of Little Pentre Organic Retreats.
I will show you how to make these pretty accessories for yourself and you will take your project or finished piece home with a pattern which you can use to make shawls, scarves, cushions, or large bed blankets & throws, and all kinds of other things.

You don't need to be an expert at crochet to make these, you will just need to have had practice with basic crochet, or have done my beginner's crochet part 1 & 2 workshops or evening classes to get used to working simple crochet stitches so you are ready to make these shapes.
I work with students to learn at their own pace, so there is no pressure to move on to another stage until you feel ready to.

At Little Pentre Organic Retreats 11am ~ 5pm

Included in the workshop:
*Tuition & creative guidance
*Lunch ~ Homemade organic soup & crusty bread
*Crochet pattern designed by Lea
*Hot spiced apple drink
*Tea, coffee & herbal teas
Investment: £50

*****You can either bring along your own yarns & hook (I can advise what kinds suits the pattern) and just pay for the day workshop (this is the best option if you are making a large blanket, so that you can source more yarns if you need them)
Or for shawls and scarves you can pre-order a kit of beautiful soft alpaca & wool (in colours you like) with a wooden crochet hook.

Shawl & Scarf Kits available (by pre-order only - all orders need to be in by 10th October)
Big Scarf Kit & Hook ~ £36
Large Shawl Wrap Kit & Hook ~ £68

Please contact Lea to book your place as soon as possible, the workshops are small groups so everyone has lots of personal attention & creative guidance, bookings are only taken with a 50% deposit.
