About Laura Taylor

Laura is a knitting and crochet enthusiast with a passion for design and colour. She completed her Honours in Fine Art at COFA, majoring in painting, however spends most of her time tangled in yarn these days! She learned to crochet as a kid, but didn’t really get into it until about 3 years ago, and she now makes crochet and knitting patterns.

While she loves knitting, crochet is her favourite to teach, as she sees it as more of a misunderstood and underrated skill. You can create all the beautiful things that can be knitted with crochet, like sweaters, beanies, mittens, scarves and toys, as well as the more traditional crochet designs, like ‘granny square’ blankets, ponchos and circular designs. Laura hopes that by teaching new students, they can pass these skills onto their children and grandchildren, so that these skills are not lost!

As a beginner I learned two basic stitches. The class was really fun and I feel like I have a good basis to keep going in my own time
