WORKSHOP | Krl and Co x Zakadit Crochet Workshop

 Krl and Co craft & coffee shop in Payerne (Switzerland)

Yesterday I attended Zakadit's crochet workshop at Krl and Co, a cute coffee & craft shop located in the Swiss town Payerne. The project chosen was a crocheted basket as seen in the photo below.

Zak is from Paris and has just published his first book with tricot & crochet tutorials last September (see below). I have been following Zak on Instagram for quite a while and I love his positive energy and creativity. So when I saw that he had added a date in Switzerland, I didn't hesitate to join his workshop! My mum joined me as well, and our Saturday became a lovely mother-daughter/ creative road trip 😊

Krl and Co is a great space dedicated to arts & crafts, DIY, workshops and coffee. It opened last March 2017 and is filled with a great selection of materials from stamps to paper for scrapbooking, wool for knitting, crochet, papers, beads, fabrics, ... and more!

 ... but first coffee and the selection of our Hooked Zpaghetti.

 Zak's workshop starts with the practice of the basics. 
I chose to work with a size 10 hook. 

 Once we master the basics, it's time to start our basket, starting from the bottom.

 The youngest participant was 11 years old and very good at it!

 I am making good progress and start to relax & enjoy myself a lot... 

 ... and then a problem strikes and I have to undo most of my work 
It's clear I won't be able to finish my basket by the end of the workshop 😅 

 Here is where I stand when it's time to pack up. I am pretty happy with the work done, 
I have caught up even though I am not finished yet. 
No problem, rain is forecasted for the weekend and I will stay cosy at home with my crochet hook!

 Not leaving without a book signed up by its author 😉  

 Happy welfie, thank you Zak for coming all the way to Switzerland!
