What is Amigurumi?

Amigurumi (Am-ee-gur-oom-ee) is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting small creatures. The word derives from the Japanese words ami (meaning crocheted or knitted) and nuigurumi (meaning stuffed doll). Becoming incredibly popular in recent times as collectors items, they can range in price online from £10-£100! 

Amigurumi Bird by Catherine Hirst

We are so excited to introduce Catherine Hirst to The Create Place to teach our very first amigurumi workshop.

Having being taught to crochet by her grandmother, she caught the craft bug at a very young age. With her art education influencing her original designs she has been teaching crochet, knitting and embroidery across the globe for over a decade. It will truly be a unique experience, so make sure you don't miss out by booking your place now!
