The group will be split into two – beginners and intermediate/advanced. The beginners will learn how to single crochet and intermediate/advanced will learn the freeform crochet technique.
Both will take home a crochet coaster that they make themselves.
The intention of the workshop isn’t to make something but to learn, first and foremost. To be mindful of the way it feels to try something new and to take home a new or honed skill.
