Designed for complete beginners, or those still practicing basic stitches, the workshop will guide participants through foundation stitches and techniques in crochet.
A number of projects and patterns will be available, and participants will have the opportunity to choose projects according to their taste and ability. Throughout the week, participants will have the opportunity to explore further stitches and techniques according to projects chosen. Teaching and subsequent learning will occur in whole groups, small groups and one-on-one as required. Participants will be provided with visual guides of stitches as they begin, with a number of visual aids available as they work and progress. Participants will walk away from the week having gained new crochet skills, including stitches, beginning and finishing, and reading patterns, and having enjoyed the ease and support of crocheting in circle.

Cornelia discovered her love for crochet accidentally, when creating baby bonnets and accessories for her photography business. Since then, she is rarely seen without a crochet project in progress and freely admits that crochet is her zen place. Cornelia has crocheted projects for events, as well as commissioned pieces. She teaches crochet one on one, and has supported a number of workshops, including at Woodford Folk Festival 2017-18, and at The Planting. Cornelia is currently creating regular crochet circles and ongoing crochet workshops in and around the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, as well as running a number of workshops within larger events. Cornelia creates many of her own patterns, and is inspired to teach individuals an art which is useful as well as beautiful. She recognises that everyone learns differently, and at their own pace, and is therefore supported by two exceptionally talented crocheters
A fee of $50 is payable to the tutor on the first day
