Description

This class introduces you to the very beautiful Tunisian Entrelac pattern by creating a lovely and extremely useful pot holder. In this 3 hour comprehensive class you will learn the tunisian simple stitch and how it can be worked into a beatuiful diamond affect fabric. You will be given a detailed pattern to work from and personal guidance to complete a sample fabric which will gives you the skills and knowledge to then go on to create a cushion, a tote, a blanket or anything else. You will be shown just how versitile and amazing tunisian crochet can be when worked in this way and the many things it can become.

For this class you will need at least two balls of yarn which we encourage you to buy from the store and support local business.

We sell the lovely range of Bendigo yarn which is a delight to work with. We do sell some smaller packs which are very popular with our beginners as they get a taste of the quality of this locally produced yarn.

Unwind Craft Cafe sells 200 gram balls of yarn.  It is also recommended that you invest in your crochet adventure with quality crochet tools. We recommend Addi hooks which are available in store.  

This class is suitable for both left and right handers.

Enjoy a lovely Devonshire tea that will make your class experience unique and very special! We are renowned for our homemade preserves and lemon curd with freshly whipped cream which accompainies this treat splendidly.

Classes are kept small to cater for all students and so you receive individual attention.

Our teacher Samantha Taylor of The Littlest Stitch is happy to help and answer any of your questions.

Unwind Craft Cafe

Vendor sincce 2016

Unwind Craft Cafe is the dream creation of Robyn, to provide a warm and inviting place for lovers of vintage, retro, handmade, and anyone who enjoys good old fashioned cafe treats that are made with love, our barista made coffee and tea selection are a good enough reason to just pop in and Unwind.

Why not grab a friend or someone special and enjoy our delicious house made Devonshire tea, fresh whipped cream, house made lemon curd (you may lick the jar as many of our customers do) home made jam with organic fruit from a family property in Rushworth, all served up with an appealing retro vintage feel, vintage tea cups and a tea cozy of course.

You will be greated by our lovely staff and an amazing colourful wall of Bendigo Woollen Mills Yarn, the store is a buzz with all the handmade wares for you to purchase or order.

You will often see someone learning a new craft, or selecting the yarn for a new project, which adds to the special atmosphere at Unwind.

We have a dedicated space for private functions, crafty catch ups for those who want to linger longer, retirement village outings or any other use we may not have thought of yet. With food and beveridges provided from our fantastic menu, let us organise a special gathering for you, add a teacher and we can incorporate a lesson or fun craft activity, perfect for team building or getting your guests involved and making it an extra special event.

With our stressful busy lives, the ever increasing screen and device time, knitting and crochet are back in vogue not only for creativity, also for their fantastic ability to help us relax and Unwind, do not under estimate this truly magical side effect of these time honoured crafts.

Children aged around 10 or older benefit greatly from Knitting and crochet, it is also something that an adult and child can do together, it builds lasting connections and fond memories, not to mention great for manual dexterity and mindfulness.

A great selection of yarn, books, knitting and crochet tools are also available, with someone who actual knows what they are selling and how to use the products (very rare today) so nothing left for you to do, other than book a class, pop in for a cafe treat, or organise that special function.

Let us help you Unwind real soon, we no you deserve it!

Payment for Classes:  Our classes are kept small in order to maximise your learning experience. This means you will receive individual attention during class, but it also means that places are limited.

In order to reserve a space in a class you must pay the full registration fee in advance. Payments and bookings are via We Teach Me (our preferred booking and payment system), in the store, or over the phone on (03) 9336 0687, using PayPal or a credit card.

Booking and Cancellations:We understand that things happen and sometimes you are unable to attend a class. However, in order to cover our teacher and class costs, please be aware of the following when booking your class.

Cancellations or changes of date made with 7 or more days notice will receive a full refund less $10 administration fee. This can be a refund or a credit to another class.

Cancellations or changes of date made with less than 7 days notice may forfeit 50% of the class fee*. This can be a refund or a credit toward another class.

Cancellations or changes of date made with less than 48 hours notice may forfeit full fee*. No refund or credit will be given.

Missing a second or subsequent session of a multi-session class there is no refund for missed session. Make up sessions are generally not available, however our teacher may be willing to arrange another date for session, or attend one of our social events (assistance may be offered if teacher is present or from fellow participants) or book a private class.

*All reimbursements are made at the discretion of the shop owner and are determined on a case by case basis.

Occasionally, Unwind may cancel a class* due to low booking numbers. We really don't like doing this as we love to teach people to knit, crochet and scrumble, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. If Unwind must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for the replacement class or a full refund as required.

Our lovely teachers realise this may be disappointing for some participants (it's disappointing for them too!), and are willing to provide a Private or Small Group Lesson** if a cancellation due to low booking numbers occurs.

*Cancellations are at the discretion of the teacher and Unwind Craft Café.**Private (one participant) and Small Group (two participants) Lessons cost a little more, however you benefit from the individual attention from our teacher.

Supplies/Materials:To avoid the disappointment and frustration that occurs when using inferior tools, we ask that any specific materials be purchased from the shop and you do not substitute.

Students may be able to purchase supplies via We Teach Me when booking a class or from the store. Please arrive at least 15-30min early to purchase supplies if you have not already done so prior to class.

Please support your local yarn store and purchase your supplies at Unwind Craft Café.

Patterns: A link to Ravelry for any class patterns will be included on the class booking page on We Teach Me. For customers that are not familiar with Ravelry, patterns can be brought in store and sent to you (or someone you nominate) via email.
