They Dared To Go Tunisian

I conducted two sessions on Tunisian Crochet for beginners last Feb. 23 (Pipino) and Mar. 15 (The Burger Project).

Here are some scenes from my Feb. 23 workshop.

This is a description of Tunisian Crochet, according to Wikipedia:

"Tunisian crochet, also known as Afghan crochet, is a type of crochet that uses an elongated hook, often with a stopper on the handle end, called an Afghan hook. It is sometimes considered to be a mixture of crocheting and knitting. As such, some techniques used in knitting are also applicable in Tunisian crochet."
This workshop is an introduction to Tunisian Crochet. I only require that participants know how to make a chain before joining my workshop. 
Creme de la Creme yarn was used for their first Tunisian session (ever). It's 100% cotton. Susan Bates Afghan Hook 5.5mm was the tool of choice.
We learned 4 basic stitches of Tunisian Crochet.
All 6 ladies (plus me) of the Feb. 23 batch!
Our Mar. 15 session was an "intimate" one. We had our little crochet corner at Brgr: The Burger Project.
It's my first time holding a session in Brgr: The Burger Project. It's just beside Pino/Pipino along Jupiter St. in Makati City. We had their truffle fries and mozzarella sticks for snacks. And I didn't even take pics!
Since they were just 2, I even managed to teach 1 participant how to make a simple flower. Happy "hooking," ladies!
I opened two Tunisian Crochet workshop sessions for beginners this summer. It will be on April 19, 2014 (Saturday) at GIGI Coffee & Cupcakes in Eastwood (Libis, Quezon City) and May 24, 2014 (Saturday) at PIPINO Jupiter (Makati City). If interested to join, please accomplish the form below.
