This full day make and take workshop is perfect for you if you’ve had a go at crochet and fancy trying your hand at making some toys and building on skills you’ve learned already.

Amigurumi pets to make

The day begins with a refresher of the basic stitches and pattern abbreviations before going on to make a crocheted cat or dog in the traditional Amigurumi style. For just £69, join us at ExCel in London for this comprehensive workshop.
