Crochet Lesson @ SCGS

Last Tuesday, I was very honored to assist Betsy to teach crochet @ SCGS (Singapore Chinese Girl School). I put Joel at my MIL’s place for 4 hours. Thank God this little rascal behaved himself and my MIL said she let him sat on the high chair for more than an hour while she’s preparing dinner, which I was very surprise cos at home, he’ll wail if I let him sit too long. To him, sitting on high chair means, ‘mum, mum’  (eating) time…. =P

Back to SCGS crochet class…

I was quite excited when Betsy asked me to assist her.  The class was quite big, around 23 students. Before the lesson, Betsy gave some explanation. This is the first time, I saw Betsy taught. She is  good & her explanation was very clear! Good mean strict too. When she’s teaching, no one supposed to do anything but listened… Hehehehe…. Wah, like back to school….

Betsy's lesson

The students were split into 3 groups. There’re 3 of us: Betsy, her mom and myself. Each of us took one group.

The students were asked to make this free-form crochet piece. At the end of the day, they were required to join all their workpiece together to make into a huge art piece…

It was really a good experience for me…. Tiring but great satisfaction!

works

Conclusion: teaching crochet is never easy. For newbies, their problems always lie on the way they hold their workpiece and the way they control the stitch tension. However this group of girls is quite smart, and they can pick up very fast….
