Episode 5 : Crochet classes with Marisa Alcock AKA Mariwish

Marisa Alcock AKA Mariwish

Hello and welcome to Episode 5 of Making Stitches! This week I’m sharing a chat I had with a friend of mine who I met through our love of crochet and our connection to Gibraltar.

Marisa Alcock was born and brought up here in Gibraltar but is now based in London and teaches music and crochet. We met a few years back through Instagram and I signed up for one of her Gibraltar based summer crochet lessons to master the art of reading a crochet chart. It was loads of fun and involved tapas, wine and reading our charts by the light of our phone torches when it got too dark to see them properly!

In this episode, Marisa shared an insight into her creative life, which began here on the Rock but which took her to England. She spent some time speaking to me between online piano lessons and a virtual craft club she’s running with some of her music students. You can find Marisa on Instagram as @Mariwish
