This course is suitable for beginners as well as participants with some textile experience. In this course, Sera will lead participants through the basics of latch-hooking. This will involve creating a pattern, drawing up and preparing a design, preparing wool lengths, and latch-hooking itself. Participants will finish the day with a small latch-hooked sampler as well as the skills to create their own latch-hooked artworks going forward. The backing canvas and latch-hook tools will be supplied.

Roll of masking tape
• Black Sharpie pen
• Pencil/Paper for drawing designs
• Cardboard (approximately an A4 amount the thickness of a packing box)
• Two pairs of scissors (one for textiles and one for cardboard)
•A selection of wool of varying thicknesses (approximately 6-8 different types and colours – second hand preferable)
