Get creating while you’re isolating! Join us on Zoom for a LIVE and interactive crochet-a-long over the space of two weeks!

Amigurumi. From the words “Ami” meaning crochet, and “nuigurumi” meaning stuffed doll, Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting miniature creatures. The duck we’ll make is just 2” tall, so not the tiniest we could go, but a good scale to start your Amigurumi adventure. It’s a technique that requires patience, concentration and a love of all things fiddly.

This class is an introduction to this intricate craft and will take place over 2 weeks.

Week 1 – Beak, wings, feet & head!

Week 2 – Body and finishing off

The workshops takes place online so you will need to have internet access and the materials listed below to hand. You should also have a basic grasp of the basic crochet stitches (US terms).

What you’ll need to craft along. . .

the pattern (this will be emailed before the workshop)

double knit yarn in blue, white, brown & yellow (or similar colours)

a 3.0mm crochet hook

a stitch marker

toy filling

a big eye needle

2 x 3mm black beads

black thread

a sewing needle

Optional extra. . .

If you are local (Helensburgh, Cardross, Garelochhead or on the Rosneath peninsula) we can provide a kit with the tools you’ll need to complete this project. It will include a 3.0mm hook, the yarn, toy filling, 2 beads, a stitch marker and a big eye needle.

Kits are £6.00 and will be delivered to your doorstep ahead of the workshop. Send us a pm via facebook with your colour choice and address details by the Wednesday before the workshop date. Payment is by bank transfer.

Taking this workshop is Sharon Goodwin from Sew Silly Lily, a graduate of Glasgow School of Art with a lifelong passion for textiles, craft and design.
