Crochet, macramé and weaving are all

passions of contemporary craft designer

Núria Mestres but it is large-scale crochet

that really has her hooked.

Núria taught herself to crochet when her children were young and was drawn to thick chunky yarns and super-size hooks which gave a quick result. Crochet baskets, bags and rugs, and macramé hangings are all easy to create using these wonderful yarns and the finished products make cool contemporary homewares.

Núria will be teaching the art of chunky crochet every day at the show from 12.30pm to 3pm daily. Book your place today – spaces will fill quickly! Book HERE!

When Núria became interested in this form of crochet, she discovered that there was
a lack of suitable yarn and rope products available in Australia. This led to sourcing
ethically produced supplies from her home country Spain, and now Núria has a growing
online business, selling linen twine, ropes for macramé and chunky yarns for crochet to
customers around Australia and as far afield as New York.
