Learn the art of Amigurumi(in just one day)!
Preparing for the spring baby boom? Yes, it’s a thing. Or perhaps you need a Netflix-friendly pastime to wile away the long winter evenings? Whatever your reason for taking up a new project, we think the Japanese art of amigurumi probably reaps the cutest rewards for your crafting efforts. Fortunately, Morris & Sons have just the class available (as well as all the supplies) to transport you to amigurumi heaven.
Literally meaning ‘crocheted stuff toy (with a big head)’, amigurumi is quick and easy to master, provided you know the absolute basics of crochet. After just three hours of learning from a Morris & Sons expert, you’ll leave the class with your very own little toy to take home or give to someone special. And, you’ll have the skills to read any pattern you fancy, or perhaps even create something totally unique with a little practice and imagination.
The beautiful Morris & Sons store also stocks a huge range of yarns from mohair to cashmere and silk, so your amigurumi creation can be both luxurious and adorable. The classes are small and focussed, so get in quick to book your place in this month’s class.
If finding the time to join a group session just isn’t possible, Morris & Sons also offers fun, supportive and individual craft sessions tailored to you. Their fortnightly Saturday craft clinics allow you to drop in and get specific, one-on-one help with any project you’re working on. Maybe you keep getting stuck with a particular project, or you need some help to adjust a pattern you’re already familiar with. Whatever guidance you need, the expert clinic teachers will help you knit, sew, stitch or crochet your way to craft success. And, you’re likely to meet some like-minded co-crafters while you’re at it.
Private tuition and small group bookings
If you’re looking to perfect a specific crafting skill, or you’re after a fun, winter-friendly activity to do with friends, Morris & Sons delivers small private groups or one-on-one tuition in their Melbourne locations. A great baby shower or birthday present for a friend or family member, tutors are available to help you master any skill from needlework through to knitting and everything in between.
