Wait until you see all of the exciting workshops we have lined up for this autumn. There are plenty of new additions, plus many favourites back by popular demand. We are always looking to add new workshops to our repertoire, so if there are any that you would like to see held at the Craft Barn please get in touch and we will see what we can do – email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a selection of knitting, crochet, patchwork and sewing workshops aimed at all levels of crafter. They aren’t just for those picking up a new skill, oh no – we have workshops for the well-seasoned crafter to advance their skills further too. There are a mixture of both full and half day mini workshops to choose from taught by either Rowan tutors or our highly talented members of staff.
Our very own Barbara will be teaching her very popular ‘Basics of Patchwork‘ workshop on Thursday 3rd September. This is a great 2½ hour workshop to help kick start your love of patchwork.
Rowan tutor Jem Weston will be sharing her love of toy knitting and cute creatures in her brand new workshop ‘Toy Knitting‘ on Friday 4th September.
Rowan tutor Melanie Boocock will be teaching the first patchwork workshop of the new season ‘Patchwork Bag‘ on Saturday 5th September. This workshop is perfect for those who are new to patchwork or those who wish to brush up on their skills.
Black Sheep Yvonne has had fabulous reviews about her 4 week ‘Intro to Sewing‘ workshop. Over the 4 weeks Yvonne will guide you through to begin your sewing journey. The course will be held on consecutive Thursday mornings starting with Thursday 10th September and ending on Thursday 1st October.
Jane Crowfoot will be back for two workshops on Friday 11th September and Saturday 12th September. On Friday she will be teaching ‘Fair Isle & Intarsia knitting‘ then ‘Professional Finishing‘ on Saturday 12th.
Rowan tutor Carol Meldrum has a brand new workshop for autumn – ‘Brioche and Tuck Stitch Knitting‘ on Friday 18th September. This would be a great technique to learn for making gorgeous scarves and snoods this winter. On the day you will start making a cowl.
Carol will also be teaching ‘Learn to Crochet‘ the following day on Saturday 19th September.
Betsan Corkhill will be holding a unique workshop based around her book – ‘Therapeutic Knitting‘ on Saturday 26th September.
All of our workshops are held in our fantastic workshop room within the Craft Barn in Warrington. Julie or Jayne will look after you throughout the day keeping you fed and watered with a delicious lunch, mouth-watering cakes and fresh pots of tea.
