Learn to Crochet with Brisstyle

Craft/ Craft Class/ Event/ Learn/ Make

Last week I started the process of ticking something off my ‘to-do-list for 2015’. I started my ‘learn to crochet’ journey.

Perfectly timed, an email newsletter from Brisstyle popped up in my inbox and there was an introductory Learn to Crochet class – using tshirt yarn to create a soft bowl. I have always admired those crocheted bowls and baskets that you see at local handmade markets and thought I’d love to learn the process to make one myself (ok, so my bowl may be a little way off that quality just yet)..

This workshop was held in the lovely Brisstyle HQ in Brisbane, in a colourful and craft-inspired creative space. The class was led by the lovely Kath Chown from Handmade High Street.

I’ve never crocheted, or really even knitted in my life, so was wondering just how much I was going to be able to pick up from one class. But I tell you, Kath was a great teacher and explained every little step so clearly and preciously that I walked out of the class with one fully completed bowl and one on the way (which I finished when I got home). Wow, I have my first bowl – mind you its a bit lop-sided, but has heaps of ‘character’- lol!
