This workshop is aimed at crocheters who would like to try out something new with their hook!

Broomstick lace is a crochet technique thought to date from the 19th century. It is completed with a crochet hook and another item, traditionally a broom handle, to produce a beautiful lacy fabric that is suited for clothing and accessories.

During this workshop Zoe will take you through the basics of this technique and in the process you will produce a beautiful scarf or cowl that is sure to be admired wherever you wear it!


All materials, tools and instructions are provided for participants to keep.

This is a 3 hour class that starts at 1pm. You will meet at the Nottingham Yarn Expo Ticket Desk at 12:45am.
