If you’ve ever wanted to make a crocheted basket, here is your chance. This is a one day workshop which teaches you all the basics of making crocheted handbags and/or baskets. We will learn how to turn a granny square into a base for a basket or handbag. We will also learn how to make a circular base!!
We will then design the shape of the bag/basket, learn to increase and decrease, making reinforced handles and how to finish.

This is a super easy, fun project for any crocheter. Modifications will be provided for those who want to make it more challenging. Each participant is provided with the opportunity to learn a new crochet technique and use this technique to make a project at home. The course notes include detailed instructions, patterns and various other tips to help participants achieve their goals. The course is aimed as a teaching module and the patterns are demonstrated in class. Project suggestions are provided so students feel free to attempt small or large projects in their own time.
