workshops and Courses

I teach a variety of different workshops and courses, which all vary in length to suit you.

You can choose from a taster workshop, learn from scratch, focus on a specific technique or jump right in and make something.

​It's completely up to you. 

 A one off
Crochet taster


If you just want to have a go and see if crocheting is for you, then a one off taster might be a good place to start.  Materials are provided, so all you need to do is turn up and have a go.  I'll teach you how to hold the hook and get started with some basic stitches and hopefully you'll be hooked!  After your taster you'll have made something to take home.


getting to grips with basics

I'll teach you all the skills you need to work with basic stitches, crochet rows and squares, change colour, join pieces together and experiment with stitch patterns.  You'll be amazed how easy it is and be able to understand and create simple patterns.

moving on from basics


lets make...


Following on from the basics, here you'll learn more stitch variations

to create more textures and learn to follow more complex patterns.  

If there is something in particular you want to do,

just let me know.
