Jo HamiltonContemporary Crochet Portraiture 

Learn new ways to master the timeless art of portraiture using the versatile medium of crochet. 

In this course I will be teaching a number of simple techniques I use to create colourful and expressive crocheted portraits in yarn. 

I will demonstrate ways to break down facial features, simplifying them into basic shapes, colours and tones. Basing their work on a printed image, students will learn to build a portrait from yarn row by row, beginning with the eyes and working out. 

Students will aim to complete at least one two- dimensional portrait during the course of the workshop. 

Students should be proficient in basic crochet stitches, ie: single and double crochet in both rows and circles, increasing and decreasing. if you can crochet a granny square, you can crochet a face.
