Silk Painting & Crochet

The first ever silk painting workshop took place on 27th January.  We started by painting squares of silk that had a gutta outline of a butterfly, to learn how to use the silk paints.  We then experimented with gutta and designed our own pictures which we transferred onto the circular suncatchers, using the skills that we'd learnt earlier in the workshop.

In the afternoon we had a beginner crochet workshop, where everyone learnt to make granny squares.

Beginner Crochet Granny Squares

New academic year, new resolution to post every workshop that runs!  Today's Beginner Crochet workshop was the first session after the summer holidays, and it was great to be back with four ladies, all of whom made their first ever granny square successfully.  They've all taken their yarn and hooks home with them so hopefully they'll carry on and have a lifetime of enjoyment from the lovely craft of crochet!
