Description

Crochet begins with the Granny Square! You know the one, you’ve seen it in the pile of colourful blankets on your granny’s couch, or in the cheerful blanket that always hung over the back of your grandad’s favourite chair.


But a granny square isn’t just a blanket. A basic crochet Granny Square can become anything you want! A cosy blanket? Sure. A bright cushion? Why not? A snuggly jumper? Now we’re talking! The end product is only limited by your imagination.


In this three hour workshop, you will be provided with all the tools needed to create your first (of many) granny squares as well as the inspiration and confidence to continue to fill your life with granny squares & crochet goodness! 


About the Teachers: Cass and Maddy met as neighbours 6 years ago and bonded instantly over their love of crafting and crochet. After many a crafternoon, they decided to turn this crafty love into a business, blooming into their collective, Coral and Cactus at the beginning of 2017. Cass discovered a love for crochet whilst nursing her first kidlet and passed on her passion & knowledge of the craft to Maddy, teaching her to make her first granny square only 3 years ago. From that point on, Maddy was as hooked as Cass for making everything from blankets, to teddies, to jumpers and more & more…!

04 December 2017 • Granny Squares are the New Black

We had a wonderful morning with Coral and Cactus and have learned an addictive new hobby! Group size allowed for more personal help during those “unco” moments and the morning was very casual like a friendly catch up :) highly recommend!
