crochet cafe session free informal

Crochet in the Cafe for June

Free entry

Our wonderfully exuberant resident textiles artist Emma Leith kick-started café crochet earlier this year and has built a welcoming community of woolly-minded crafters through her cosy crochet sessions. Emma will be on hand if you get your threads in a twist, or if you’re lacking inspiration and need a new project to get stuck in to. These sessions are ideal for anyone with some previous crochet experience who has already mastered the chain and treble stitch.
