How to Facilitate a Crochet Workshop

Posted in Tutorials and Help on February 22nd, 2015 by Tameko Barnette – 5 Comments

Sharing crochet as a social group or with a friend who loves it as much as you do is one thing, but teaching crochet in a workshop is a little different. However, it can be a joyous experience and one worth trying for those who are between jobs, need a fun part-time job, or perhaps, you are looking to become an entrepreneur.

Either way, in the world of crochet, you have a plethora of inspirations and opportunities. A great idea is to put your years of crochet wisdom to good use and facilitate crochet workshops. It’s not as complicated as it may sound at first, especially, if you are not familiar with facilitating a workshop of any kind.

Teach Someone to Crochet?

Well, 2012 is on its way out and 2013 will be coming in. Soon we’ll all be committing to our resolutions, as is a tradition here on Crochet Spot. I would like to suggest a goal and hope it will make it to your 2013 list: teach someone to crochet!

Teaching crochet might be easier than it seems. It’s best to have some resources ready, like the wonderful tutorials that Rachel has here on the site. If you are patient and your student is motivated, s/he will be crocheting before long. I think the trick is showing your student something that s/he would love to make.

For every person that “must make” item is different. A friend of mine had to make amigurumi. My students were loving crochet flowers. Many people feel the need to crochet for babies. Whatever the motivation, just be sure you check in with your student to help with his/her project!

Have you ever taught someone to crochet before? Do you have any teaching tips to share? Do you think you’ll give teaching a try in 2013?

Crocheting with Kids

One of the most exciting and beneficial aspects to being a mother is being able to share the things you love and enjoy with your children.  It can also be one of the most disappointing aspects as well…especially when the child does not enjoy something as much as you might!

I learned this the hard way when my oldest daughter Rosey was five.  I had been waiting and waiting her whole life until she was old enough for us to read A Wrinkle in Time together and within the first five minutes of reading it she exclaimed, “Momma!  This book is so boring!!!!”.  Bummer.

Thank goodness she is very much into crochet, or I might have lost all hope! read more »
