Crochet mastermind and textile designer Jess Colacino from Cino Made, will be offering a chance for beginners to learn how to make their very own crochet basket at her home studio in Kilsyth on Saturday 17th May.
Crochet Basket Workshop
Jess began creating handmade toys and unique gifts under her Cino Made brand name in 2011, and since then has branched out into teaching workshops to like-minded folk, sharing her skills in the vintage craft of crochet.
Her crochet classes include how to make a scarf and matching beanie, crafting a granny square scarf, and the up and coming crochet basket workshop. Private lessons are also available upon request.
All classes are designed for beginners, no previous crochet experience is necessary, as Jess covers all the basic stitches required for each particular project.

You will need to bring 2 or more skeins of different coloured Acrylic yarn 8ply, a crochet hook size 5.00mm (Hooks are also available to purchase on the day) and a pen & notebook. Jess will provide her full Kilsyth address in an information pack sent out to participants once booked.
