New Class – Crochet

We have an exciting new crochet class starting in Term 2 with our fabulous new tutor, Wendy Burgess.  Class numbers are limited so register now so you don’t miss out.

Have you ever wanted to learn to crochet so that you could craft your own accessories and homewares – or create hand-made gifts for family or friends?

In this 9 week course you’ll learn all you need to know to become a confident crocheter, including:

* basic crochet stitches and techniques

* the best type of hooks and yarn for your project

* how to read crochet patterns

You will create a different crocheted item every week, including a drawstring bag, water bottle holder, candle jar, keyring, a set of coasters, and more.

COST:

  • $195 for current members of Ettalong Beach Arts and Craft Centre
  • $220 for new members (includes $25 annual membership fee)

The fee is for 18 hours and includes $60 for materials for all craft supplies and patterns for 9 crochet projects.

WHEN: Fridays 2:30pm to 4:30pm (from 6 May to 1 July)

ONLINE BOOKINGS: https://beginnerscrochet.eventbrite.com

COVID Update

Ettalong Beach Arts & Crafts Centre remains in “Lockdown” under current NSW Health Orders. This has prevented us from holding Committee meetings, and running our classes. It also means our Annual Exhibition & Sale (that was scheduled for the last weekend in October) has been cancelled.

Current restrictions mean that Term 4 classes cannot return on time. However further easing of restrictions which are estimated to be announced in late October (once 80% double vaccination rate is achieved in NSW) may make it possible to safely recommence classes from then. We will advise on a start date as soon as we are able.

Many members have remained active with their Arts at home, which has undoubtedly assisted them to survive under lockdown conditions. It also means that our 2022 Exhibition & Sale which is scheduled for October 28th, 29th & 30th October 2022 will be very well stocked.

Our Boobs and Bags group has continued with their great work from their homes providing regular supplies of comfort cushions for post-operative breast cancer patients to Gosford Hospital.

Take care and stay safe and well
