Let's make a Granny Square Blanket! March 18th (online)
Join fibre artist and Ply Studio owner, Carmen Bohn, to start a crocheted granny square blanket that you will want to tuck into on these early spring days as we come out of hibernation to visit with our friends and neighbours outside. This workshop is short, simple and FUN and takes place on March 18th from 6:30pm to 8:30pmEDT.
In this online workshop, you will learn how to make a simple crocheted granny square, which contains the techniques of a starter chain and single and double crochet stitches. Though we won't (obviously) finish the whole blanket in this session, you will be able to create at least one or 2 squares and feel confident continuing on your own. I will provide video links after the workshop showing you how to join and finish your blanket on your own.
There is no prerequisite for this workshop - just an interest in learning something new or building on some beginner skills you already have.
Your registration fee includes:
- 2+ hours of personalized instruction, plus support before and after the session
- 3 balls of yarn and a crochet hook to get you started*
- A solid understanding of how to create all the foundational crochet techniques
- A bit of 'pre-work' to be reviewed and completed before the workshop (this is to get you started if you have absolutely no basis in fibre crafts)
- A follow-up email that will keep you going with videos and links to all the resources you need to complete your blanket
- A boredom busting good time and something to look forward to! My workshops are always engaging and I promise that you will have fun. This is a great project for a lot of winter nights to come. You can even drink wine while you are learning this (or a nice cup of tea).
I will email a materials list and Zoom details to all registered attendees upon receiving your registration. This will help you to have all the right supplies and equipment on hand at the time of the workshop. No stress, just fun!
1) This workshop will take place virtually using Zoom. You will need to have video capability in order to share your progress with me through the class.
2) This workshop will be taught in English.
3) The blanket you will be creating will differ from the example shown in this listing. The photo depicts the variety of techniques you will learn and is a very typical granny square blanket.
4) Registration fee is per person. If you have more than one person joining from one location, the instructor can only work with one person in that location.
5) *This is a limited time offer and only available for curbside pickup at Ply Studio in Ottawa before the time of the workshop on March 18th; no shipping option; no rain cheques.
Registration fees are non-refundable but can be transferred to someone else OR used for a future workshop. Should I have to cancel, students will receive a full refund. Please note that I reserve the right to postpone and reschedule a class due to unforeseen circumstances. Should this be the case, I will make every effort to contact students to let them know of the cancellation and to arrange a makeup workshop.
