Step-by-Step Freeform Crochet with Sharyn McNab
Freeform Crochet and Knitting is the seemingly random combination of crochet, knitting and possibly other fibre arts to make a piece not constrained by colours, stitches, patterns or other limitations. Source: Wikipedia
Ever wanted to try Freeform Crochet and not known where to start or feel daunted? Well this workshop is perfect for you! Throw caution to the wind and let your creativity flow!
This class is designed to teach you how to make "scrumbles" using crochet stitches, techniques, shapes and different ply yarns that create texture and interest. The scrumbles you make can then be used as individual pieces or joined together to create a larger fabric. I think of them as jigsaw pieces.
The last two lessons will be focussed on what project you decide to work on so you can complete the course with a finished product/goal. It could be a cushion cover, bag, gloves, top or a wall hanging - whatever you feel inspired to do!
As your "teacher" my goal is to guide and inspire you to create and incorporate your own elements of freeform in your future craft endeavours.
During the 6 weeks you will learn to make 7 different shapes using various stitch techniques, learn 4 different textured stitches (Bullion, Bobble, Puff & Popcorn) and different ways to apply them, surface embellishment and joining whilst working towards your finished project piece.
A yarn pack of 12 different yarns in different ply's and colour ways will be provided at an additional cost of $35 at the first lesson. You may add to your "freeform stash" as your ideas develop with your own yarns over the remaining weeks. The yarn pack may be selected and pre-purchased in-store if you desire.
Classes are kept small in order to provide individual attention. They are meant to be fun and there is no such thing as a mistake!

Unwind Class Terms & Conditions
Payment for Classes: Our classes are kept small in order to maximise your learning experience. This means you will receive individual attention during class, but it also means that places are limited.
In order to reserve a space in a class you must pay the full registration fee in advance. Payments and bookings are via We Teach Me (our preferred booking and payment system), in the store, or over the phone on (03) 9336 0687, using PayPal or a credit card.
Booking and Cancellations:We understand that things happen and sometimes you are unable to attend a class. However, in order to cover our teacher and class costs, please be aware of the following when booking your class.
Cancellations or changes of date made with 7 or more days notice will receive a full refund less $10 administration fee. This can be a refund or a credit to another class.
Cancellations or changes of date made with less than 7 days notice may forfeit 50% of the class fee*. This can be a refund or a credit toward another class.
Cancellations or changes of date made with less than 48 hours notice may forfeit full fee*. No refund or credit will be given.
Missing a second or subsequent session of a multi-session class there is no refund for missed session. Make up sessions are generally not available, however our teacher may be willing to arrange another date for session, or attend one of our social events (assistance may be offered if teacher is present or from fellow participants) or book a private class.
*All reimbursements are made at the discretion of the shop owner and are determined on a case by case basis.
Occasionally, Unwind may cancel a class* due to low booking numbers. We really don't like doing this as we love to teach people to knit, crochet and scrumble, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. If Unwind must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for the replacement class or a full refund as required.
Our lovely teachers realise this may be disappointing for some participants (it's disappointing for them too!), and are willing to provide a Private or Small Group Lesson** if a cancellation due to low booking numbers occurs.
*Cancellations are at the discretion of the teacher and Unwind Craft Café.**Private (one participant) and Small Group (two participants) Lessons cost a little more, however you benefit from the individual attention from our teacher.
Supplies/Materials:To avoid the disappointment and frustration that occurs when using inferior tools, we ask that any specific materials be purchased from the shop and you do not substitute.
Students may be able to purchase supplies via We Teach Me when booking a class or from the store. Please arrive at least 15-30min early to purchase supplies if you have not already done so prior to class.
Please support your local yarn store and purchase your supplies at Unwind Craft Café.
Patterns: A link to Ravelry for any class patterns will be included on the class booking page on We Teach Me. For customers that are not familiar with Ravelry, patterns can be brought in store and sent to you (or someone you nominate) via email.
