Wiltshire Green Woollies is very proud to have been selected to deliver the Children's Crochet Course at the Marlborough College Summer School held between the 12th July and the 8th August 2020.
Our course is designed for children from 9-12 years of age who are absolute beginners, having no previous crochet experience. With simple daily lessons reinforced by the clear and easy to follow illustrations and pictures in the course-companion, crochet basics will be learnt day by day as the child works towards making one of five adorable amigurumi pets to take home:

· Kevin the Koala
· Princess Magnificat
· Ophelia the enchanted Unicorn

A crochet kit-bag is provided containing an illustrated course companion and all the yarns and accessories needed to complete all the course projects and make your Amigurumi pet.

Ophelia is a very special unicorn. As you crochet her she becomes more and more magical and when you add her colourful mane and tail, she will become your friend for life.

Kevin the Koala is a lovely little chap. He hasn't had an easy time lately because of the bush fires in Australia. Kevin really wants a good friend to look after him because he is very lonley.
WGW will donate all proceeds from the sale of Kevin the Koala pattern sold in 2020 to the Australian Wildfire fund.
Darius the Dinosaur is a very timid Dinosaur and he is waiting for you to crochet him so that he can have a friend to enjoy adventures with.
Funky Monkey can't wait to play your favourite games with you. Because he is made from the colours you like best, your Funky Monkey will be completely unique, just like you!
Princess Magnificat is a very imperious and very loving puss-cat. She is waiting for you to crochet her so that she can be your best friend for ever.
