EASTER POMPOM WREATH
Welcome to my first Virtual workshop! Due to the weird world we are in right now I have changed the plan and though we may not be meeting in a physical space we are still going to Get Our Craft On!
Time & Location
26 Mar 2020, 18:45 – 21:00
About the Event
SO! This workshop was going to be running on Thursday 26th of March, we were all going to gather in the lovely LoveCrafts offices and make pompoms to our heart's content. Due to The Weirdness Of The World right now the plans have changed and I am going to be sending out all the materials you will need to create this wreath in the comfort of your own home.
I had a chat with the lovely ladies who already had tickets and they all really wanted to still be involved and do some crafting. They suggested that rather than having an intense 2.5 hour workshop I could 'drip feed' the instructions over a few days/weeks so we could all make at our leisure.
I think this is an excellent idea and am currently working out how best to deliver the information - It'll probably be a mix of PDF instructions, IGTV, posts and maybe something like Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
I'm having a lot of fun working out colour schemes and packing up materials to send out. The package will include: 25cm wire wreath base, 6 (ish) meters of super chunky yarn for covering the wreath, a selection of yarns for making the pompoms, Two sizes of pompom maker, felt sheets, felt balls and sequins for making flowers. All you will need are some scissors and maybe a glue gun (but it's totally possible to make without one (but, but if ever there was an excuse to buy a glue gun now's the time!!)
If you'd like to join in using your own stash then I'll be sharing the instructions from next Thursday but if you'd like a package of materials sent to you then please buy a ticket and I'll be in touch to find out your address and what colours you might prefer in your wreath.
Love to you all.

PS: this was the original description for the course:
Missing your Christmas pompom wreath? Fret no more and come and join Christine at this two hour workshop amd make a 25cm diameter pompom wreath in a colour scheme of your choice. She will be teaching simple crochet and plaiting techniques for covering the metal wreath frame and showing you how to make a selection of plain and multi coloured pompoms for decoration. Once you have fixed the pompoms to the wreath create felt flowers for the finishing Spring time touches.
