Granny Square Crochet Saturday Workshop in Auckland

Join avid crocheter Portia in this Granny Square Crochet workshop and learn the basics of crochet by making your first Granny Squares!

Granny squares got their name as this used to be how ‘Granny” made a quick and simple crocheted blanket. In more recent times, creatives, including Portia have reshaped and modernised the items that can be made the squares. Realising through clever design that contemporary items can be made easily using different colour combinations in the granny squares. Don’t forget to check out our pinterest board for inspiration.

Crochet is something beginners can learn quickly. A big advantage of making granny squares for your items is you can crochet without having to lug the ‘in progress’ item around with you.

In this Granny Square Crochet workshop you will focus on making the squares and getting the technique right, as well as knowing your materials.

  • 1 x 4.00mm crochet hook
  • scissors

I would like to thank Portia for being an excellent teacher in the crochet class I took a couple of weeks ago. I have been trying to learn myself for many years to no avail and Portia was so patient and very skilful. Thank you.

As a complete beginner, I found the workshop extremely helpful.  Portia was very patient, explaining the various stitches clearly and encouraging of our efforts.  The handbook she supplied was helpful and much appreciated.  Thanks for arranging the course.
