Schedule Spring 2013
This is my crochet class schedule 2013. This will be fleshed out further with workshops elsewhere later on, but for now, it’s looking like this:
It’s that time of year again, time to think about keeping warm and why not combine that with hook and wool to stay warm and get the added benefit of achieving great hooked things at the same time?
Thursday Mornings 10.30 – 12.30
Tinahely Farm Shop, Tinahely, Co Wicklow
Thursday Evenings 8.00-10.00
Market Square, Tinahely, Co Wicklow
The theme for the February/March run of classes will be Crochet Living With A Flower Twist.
Tre will be an emphasis on learning new stitch combinations and techniques and we will have fun using rope and alternative materials as well as some fun Free Form Crochet.
Beginners will get a thorough grounding in Classical Crochet, learn all the stitches, increasing/decreasing, reading patterns and crochet charts and fine finishing.
Everybody will get completely hooked!
Price for absolute beginners is €65 (all materials included) and €55 for continuers (bring your own yarn + hook) or drop-in classes at €15.

About the Accommodation & Studio
Essence of Mulranny (EOM)
Overlooking Clew bay the EOM house and studio is set in beautiful Mulranny with a blue flag beach nearby. The owner Cheryl Cobern Browne is passionate about craft and the environment and is a welcoming host. All the meals are provided during the stay and Cheryl cooks healthy and delicious foods. The house is modern and spacious with 10 bedrooms including 3 en-suites and some shared bathrooms. The class will take place in the round tower studio that Cheryl has built on the grounds to facilitate crafting groups. The studio will be for the use of group and is left open throughout the stay. ‘Making available the things I am most passionate about is not only a privilege, but deeply enriching for me too – every time.’ Taken from her website http://www.greenwaygetaways.ie/.
Tunisian crochet is a cross between knitting and crochet. The distinctive fabric created by this technique looks woven and has very many uses particularly in soft furnishing, bags and not least jackets as well as the traditional use of blankets. Tunisian crochet is typically worked on a long hook with a stopper on the end – similar to a knitting needle.
The techniques taught will be classical Tunisian Crochet and there will be an emphasis on colour work (including intarsia) and texture as well as an element of design.
Day 1 Basic techniques
Day 2 Working circular including designing your own hat or bag.
Double ended Tunisian Crochet Hook size 5 or 6 mm and Aran weight yarn in different colours.
A limited number of hooks will be available for sale at the workshop.

If you have the people and the venue, I have the skill and materials and will travel to teach. I am always available to customize Master Class workshops for craft groups, colleges, yarn shops etc.
Workshops range from teaching complete beginners to crochet, to teaching specific techniques like Tapestry Crochet or Tunisian Crochet or perhaps a Freeform workshop. Best practice and good finishing is always included in my tuition as well as how to avoid repetitive strains, achieve beautiful drape in the fabric you are making and so on.
If you are interested in coming to me here in Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland as a group, I can also customize workshop packages, even including accommodation if that is needed.
