Learn crochet to make bespoke fashion accessories from an experienced craft artist.

Methodology

I use old traditional Turkish fine crochet craft technique (Oya) to make my beautiful pieces. My teaching method depends on my students' requirements. If you are a total crochet beginner I would start with granny stitches and end with a finished piece of work. If you already know a bit about crochet technique then I can teach my own crochet techniques. I always end each lesson with a finished piece of work such as a flower, leaf, etc.
You will need at least 1.5hours to complete your finished fine crochet work, depending on the design, size, etc of the piece.

The first 30 minutes lesson is free.

Note: If you are a group I can consider special rates.

Experience

I graduated from a fine art faculty in painting and studied for 2 years in fashion design. I had a career as a fashion designer for 6 years and craft tutoring for 3 years and also fashion illustration tutoring for 2 years at private colleges. I am a stylist, fashion designer craft and conceptual artist. I make all kinds of bespoke fashion accessories from earrings to socks. I use old traditional Ottoman fine crochet technique to make my beautiful pieces. I have taught many different art and craft subjects for many different age groups. I love learning and teaching. I can teach beginner or advanced crochet classes depending on your level.

I have known Meli for some time and have seen her creativity flourish and grow in a Craft environment. She is well suited to a teaching context as she has the ability to engage with people with empathy, at all levels. There is a beautiful aesthetic and artistry in her creations and I believe that, as a tutor she will inspire people to connect with their artistic possibilities.
