Recently I have been experimenting with new crochet stitch techniques and some fun non crochet related yarn projects like these beauts (swipe for more) all ready for upcoming events. I keep teasing you with a secret project and these have been another secret... not THE project but another one I have been excited about developing. I have always loved to teach and in my younger days I thought I would teach young people, I've had some experience with voluntary sessions, in schools and out, so when Eleanor from @knitnottingham asked me to run a kids workshop I jumped at the chance. To attract a wider age range I stepped away from my usual crochet (I'm not ready to teach kids to crochet just yet!) and went back to my weaving roots. I have loved exploring the woods with my daughter, collecting sticks and adding yarn in different forms to create three very different effects. The woven one takes the most effort and will need the most focus (this ones my fave) but they are all appropriate for a variety ages. A date hasn't been confirmed yet but I'm sure it'll be during the school holidays sometime. Watch this space! Talking of school holidays I have been asked to run an under 4's craft session at an SSBC event next week and will be making yarn wrapped stick wands and decorations. I'm daunted by the age group but super excited to introduce the littlest of people and their families to the world of yarn. What do you think? Do you think the kids will like it?
