Just News: My ‘not-so-crazy’ Crazy Coat

If you don’t know about The Crazy Coat Workshop / CAL, you are missing out. Luckily, the next round starts on the 1st of May! So you can still join.

What is The Crazy Coat Workshop / CAL? It is a three month designer workshop, run on Facebook, in a secret group. Each participant will design and make, a coat according to her own liking. It could be a long coat, or a short coat. A form fitting coat, or a loose, oversized, bulky coat. A colourful CRAZY coat, or just a plain coat. Whatever you want, we will make it happen!

I encountered a few people who didn’t want to make anything ‘crazy’ and was totally petrified that they would be able to join if they wanted to make something plain and simple. WRONG!

I quickly crocheted up a plain jacket, just to show that anything goes. Whatever you conceive in your mind, you can achieve. I will help you. I wanted an oversized, loose-fitting, dropped shoulder jacket, and this is what I made!

I was so blessed to have a whole lot of ladies here at Yarn in a Barn today, and one of them is Loma Groenewald, the famous crochet photographer! I immediately asked her to take some photos of me in my jacket! I might not be a model, but a good photographer helps!

She even snapped the details!

Join me for the next round. You are going to learn so much, all while having a lot of fun!

The cost is R500 per person and you can book your place HERE.
