What you will do is called Amigurumi (pronounced a-me-gu-roo-mi). It is a Japanese word for the art of making stuffed dolls and toys. The Hook A Monster team will teach you the basic skills in crochet: how to hold the hook and the yarn, how to make the single crochet stitch, working in the round, increasing, decreasing, fastening off and making a magic circle. You will learn how to read a crochet pattern. You will be guided through Amigurumi specific skills of placing eyes, adding features, managing toy stuffing, fastening off neatly and creating a toy that is full of character.
Hook A Monster guarantees that you will make a complete monster and take it home with you at the end of the workshop. The team takes so much joy in helping you make your Monster a one-of-a-kind creative expression. There will be examples in the room to demonstrate how colours and textures can be used to customise your toy.
The Hook A Monster team creates a fun and friendly atmosphere to learn crochet skills. There is a teacher for every 3-4 people so you get individual guidance and attention throughout the workshop. All the materials are included in the price.
