Description
If you’d love to learn how to crochet, join me on this 3-week course, suitable for complete beginners. You will learn basic techniques and stitches, getting to know how NOT to lose or gain stitches when working in rows, then building on your new skills to make a granny square! You will also learn how to read crochet charts. Numbers are limited to only 5 places per course in order to give each student the best tuition possible, so booking is essential!

Yarns and hooks are provided for the first session only, where advice is given on what to buy.

Crochet workshops for beginners – “All about doubles” & “All about trebles”

Level
Suitable for complete beginners.

Description
During session 1, “All about doubles”, discover the basics of crochet, focusing on a simple and versatile stitch: the double crochet.
In session 2, “All about trebles”, will expand your skills with another very common stitch: the treble and master the (in)famous granny square!
You don’t have to attend session 1 to join session 2. Both sessions are aimed at complete beginners and are slow-paced, with lots of repetition. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Materials
Yarns and hooks are provided for the first session you attend only. Bring a pen and paper if you’d like to take notes.

Venue
Ammonite Yarns, 7 Llantrisant Road, Pontyclun, CF72 9DP

Date/Time
Next dates TBA

Price
£35 per person per session (includes refreshments, yarn and a hook) – £10 discount (total price of £60) if booking both sessions at the same time and paying in full!

 

If the scheduled sessions do not suit you, we can always have a chat about a customised class to get you started towards your most pressing crochet goal!

 

More classes and workshops are in the pipeline… Stay tuned!
