    What is this workshop about?

    This 2-hour workshop will show you how to create a simple slip stitch form of crochet to create lovely textured ‘fabrics.’ Also known as Muslim Crochet, Old World Crochet, Pjoning and Shepherd’s Knitting it is believed that this is one of the oldest forms of crochet in the world.

    Who is this workshop for?

    This course is aimed towards people who have never crocheted before and those who can already create a chain and slip stitch.  

    Entry Requirements to do this workshop:

    A basic level of conversational and written English is needed to complete this workshop.

    How you will be assessed?

    Through questions and answers, the completion of weekly learner reflection forms and a sample of your work completed during the session.

    What learners need to bring/supply

    Learners will require chunky yarn, either a traditional Bosnian crochet hook (also known as a Pjoning hook) or a normal crochet hook size 9mm or above and scissors. 

    Additional Information

    Tip: Keep your costs down and to be sustainable perhaps visit your local charity shop for yarn and hooks or put a call out on the website next-door or ask family and friends if they have any unwanted tools/yarns.
