Crochet away

Join us for an extraordinary crochet workshop led by the designers from TOFT.

All of crochet time slots are currently sold out, join our waiting list for ticket updates.

If you’re looking for something creative to do this February, come and join the TOFT team for a private crochet workshop followed by a talk with one of the Museum's own dinosaur experts. 

In this exclusive workshop you will have a chance to create your very own Stegosaurus in a limited-edition hand-dyed colourway unique to this event.

You will be provided with everything you need to make your dino - the wool, stuffing, crochet hook, sewing up accessories and a pattern, as well as expert tuition. 

The TOFT team will be on hand for any troubleshooting during the workshop, where you will learn how to read a crochet pattern, how to start and finish each body part and how to sew them all together to complete the design. 

Light refreshments are also included in the workshop.
