After the success of our first series of Learn to Crochet, Marie Donnelly is back with her second series which is perfect for those who already have a basic understanding of application but want to advance and refine their skills. For those of you who don't know Marie, Marie Donnelly is a talented Crochet Coach from Donegal. It was from watching her father weave beautiful fabric out of wool that Marie began to take an interest in crafts. Her grandmother was a great knitter and taught her the basic skills of knitting. It was at primary school where she first learned the basic skills of crochet. A number of years ago, Marie continued to hone her skills in the area of crochet and completed a number of crochet courses with a national and international designer. This afforded Marie the opportunity to create classic designs and further develop her crochet techniques.
Marie says, "The art of crochet is all about social connection, tapping into the creative side and empowering people to develop their skills and explore the endless opportunities of what they can do with a crochet hook and wool."
