cantankerous crochetier

 “I crochet to keep my mind from unravelling” is a revised version of a quote by Niki de St Phalle, very much appropriate for my next blog post, all about my crochet processes.  I suppose it helps to look back at what you have done, every now and again, to review, and when you make blankets as huge as the ones I make, at the same time hope to post monthly, well, there are expected to be some months void of crochet blanket completion news..

Welcome to my website: thecreativehook.com

I have been hooked on Crochet for a number of years now and you can see the evidence of this in my website’s ARCHIVE pages, where you can find a few carefully selected examples of my work from my years at Salford University, involving a lot of crochet work.  I have finished my Visual Art Degree in 2008, and added my MA Arts Health qualification in 2016.  As part of my Arts Health course i have facilitated a crochet workshop in a mental health setting, with positive results. 

There is a diversity of materials and techniques that interests me in conjunction with crochet, such as costume making, toy making, decorating of everyday objects and generally finding value in creativity.  I find it rewarding and satisfying to be able to not waste materials and ideas 🙂

My creative work is my life translated into hand-crafted items of everyday use.  Any work involving imagination, creativity and certain amount of skill is important, for me personally, but more recently is also being recognised more and more as of value for our well-being as members of the society.  

Imagination has no boundaries and that is why I am hooked on the Creative processes and their impact on wellness.  In particular, however:


Crafting has always been a part of my life, but crochet is the one that i tend to find time and time again, my projects and the struggles that i face working my way through stitches have become a big part of who i am as an artist, and you can read all about them in the BLOG section of this website.

Crochet is a comparatively easy process with many health and well being benefits resulting from it, and i would very much like to spread the word, let everyone know what i have learnt so far…

If you find yourself struggling for a new hobby, would like to be able to find a new way of relaxation or are in the market for some valuable and fulfilling me time, you may as well give CROCHET a go!!!
