Be Inspired Portrait Workshop JHB 15th April


Join us on our fifth Be Inspired Crochet TourĀ  with internationally renowned crochet designers, Atty Van Norel and Jose Dammers, from the Netherlands.

Enjoy a full day workshop in free style and structured crochet with Atty and Jose. Learn tricks of the trade first hand from master crochet designers, and work on your own unique portrait, using yarns supplied in your kit.

You will be creating a handbag and will be shown freestyle techniques and helped towards completing your portrait. There will be some structured elements worked on in class, and a demonstration of how to complete the bag at home. We have kept the kits small to minimise the cost, as most of you have plenty of yarn in your stash that you can add to complete the bag – but for those who don’t and want to expand their selection, yarns will be for sale during the weekend. I will also be busy sourcing some leather straps that you will be able to hopefully purchase on the day to add that bit more pizazz to your creation!

Tea and muffins will be served upon your arrival (8.30am) and again in the afternoon. A hearty lunch will also be included, please let us know if you are a vegetarian.

So summary of what you get:

Teas, snacks and lunch
