Yarn-craft Classes & Workshops in SA – end Sep & Oct

Hi hi dear Yarn-lovers, and welcome to the last week of September (already)! I can hardly believe it. As much as I’d love to share with you the awesome retreat I was on this weekend, I’ll leave that for another day**. I feel a sense of urgency to share the yarn-related classes & workshops that are being offered across SA until the end of October. Urgent because there are so many in just the few days left of September, and today is already the 26th.

There’s a class that I’m particularly desperate to attend but haven’t yet had the opportunity. It’s the YarnCreations Colour Marling + Melting Workshop by Adele Marais. (Incidentally, her name has a unique pronounciation: A– as in Ah, de– as in the “dea” in “dear”, le– as in the “li” in “live” ☺️).

Every time it’s been held in Gauteng, it’s either been full or something has happened that’s prevented me from going. So I have severe FOMO because it’s being held in TWO Western Cape locations in the next few days. And I’m free for enough hours to attend a workshop, but not free enough to get to Cape Town. I hope you’ve registered for this class at one of the venues below – it’s one you really don’t want to miss out! Adele, please do another in Gauteng soon 😊.

So without further ado, here are classes and workshops in main centres across SA, until the end of September.

*UPDATE – October classes (tagged in this post) can be found here. All future workshops will be updated on a monthly basis on the Workshops & Classes page.  

I’ve ordered them by date rather than by region – let’s see how that goes…
