Crochet and spindle spinning workshops in Creativa Grenoble

Once again, I had the pleasure to be invited along with the Greblogueuses at the big local craftfair « Creativa ». A perfect opportunity to connect with crafters, see again familiar faces… and share my love of crochet and spindle spinning with others !

Here are a few pictures of those 3 days…

Learning how to spin yarn with the simplest tool: a spindle

4
Using the park and draft method, they learn how to rotate the spindle, stretch the fiber, pinch it, let the twist go up the fiber to transform it into yarn…
5
At the end of the hour, we plied their singles into a balanced yarn, so that each lady could bring back home their mini-skein of handspun yarn 🙂

8
Crocheting a flower.. or how it’s sometimes harder to choose the colors than the shape of a project !

9
Crocheting in public always attracts interested viewers…

Another interesting crochet mini-class with Camille: understanding the basic construction of a top-down seamless sweater.
15
And the mini-sweaters we made during the class…

Another Crochet flower class.. except this time the ladies had no idea about how to crochet ! Wowza! That was slightly stressful at the beginning.. until I decided they could make an easier flower and practice the basic crochet stitches at the same time…

Which worked perfectly ! After 1h 1/2, they both knew how to chain, do a single and double crochet… and had finished their beautiful flowers !

Lovely times with lovely friends, including Heike and her spinning wheels 🙂
