I received a text message from a fellow yarnbomber in the late afternoon yesterday asking if i was available to conduct a crochet workshop today. So i did (coz it was supposed to be an hour starting at 11am)!
It’s at this year’s Singapore Mini Maker Faire at Senja-Cashew CC. The morning crowd was slow. I only had one “student” at 10.30am (i arrived at 10am) who was actually helping out at one of the booths there (that’s her hand in the top left hand corner of the photo collage below). Taught her to make a granny square. She enjoyed it a lot…repeatedly saying, “This is fun!” She made 2 squares (one with minimal guidance). Yay!!!
As i was about to leave, two girls came along and wanted to learn. I handed them a hook each and let them choose the yarn. At first, hey had trouble holding the hook and yarn but were fine after awhile. I taught the older girl the granny square while my friend showed and told the younger one to make a length of chain. More people wanted to join in so my friend went to teach them. The two girls tried their best. Through twisted stitches (which i left as it is. I couldn’t bear to frog their first attempts) and a couple of improvisations, the older girl finished her square and the younger one made an “A” (coz that’s the first letter of her name). I had to take my leave then. But… not before taking a few shots of the place.
