Do you want to learn how to crochet?

Here are my next scheduled crochet classes for beginners. Follow the links (which will take you to the Ammonite Yarns website) to book a place (you can pay a small deposit or the full fee). Feel free to get in touch via the contact form if you have any queries.

Level
Suitable if you are a complete beginner who has never even picked up a crochet hook!

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!

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

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

Price
£40 per person (refreshments provided)

Level
Suitable if you attended the complete beginner’s course, but you can also join us if you know how to crochet simple things (working in straight rows, making granny squares…) but would like to expand your knowledge.

Description
In this course, we learn about circles, chevron patterns, fancy stitches, as well as how to make exciting flowers, leaves and birds! Book early as most spaces get snapped up by students who attended the course for complete beginners.

Materials
Please bring your own yarn and hooks.

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!

Gaëlle is a fantastic crochet tutor! I’d wanted to learn for years and had tried books and video tutorials to no avail. After the beginner course of 3 sessions, I was able to read a simple pattern and started a granny square blanket. Gaëlle is a patient and encouraging tutor and she provided clear and relevant handouts to support the lessons. I would not hesitate to recommend the course.

An excellent course with a lovely, patient tutor - just what every beginner needs! The handouts were instructive and clear, giving the essentials of what we needed to know for the course; the class was an ideal size with everyone receiving the guidance they needed from Gaëlle. I now have the confidence to tackle crochet patterns on my own and look forward to attending more of Gaëlle's crochet courses in future.

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning to crochet with Gaëlle. The course has provided all the essentials needed to give me the confidence to pick up a pattern and have a go!! The tips Gaëlle has shared and the handouts are really helpful. Thank you Gaëlle.

Excellent course. Excellent and VERY patient teacher! Very useful handouts given in each session. I now know how to do different types of stitches, decreasing and increasing. And most important how to read a pattern! Money well spent....:-)

Excellent course run by Gaëlle. Did beginners and followed it with the intermediate course really enjoyed both and found the handouts very helpful and informative. Really recommend the courses.

Gaelle's Crochet for Beginners six week course was excellent. At the end of week one, I made a patterned scarf! Gaelle is very knowledgable, extremely affable and flexes her approach to meet varying standards and speeds of learning. Her handouts are excellent and I have a skill for life. I can't wait to go to the next course!

Gaelle is such a good tutor. Everything is clearly explained (brilliant handouts) and if you do make a mistake she shows you where it went wrong and shows you so clearly how to correct it. Nothing is too daunting, every new step appears so easy and before you know it you can do a variety of stitches, and can make squares, baskets and hats and you have the know how to branch out to other projects too. I have been totally inspired, tonight is the last lesson of the beginner's course and I wish it wasn't the last, I have had such fun. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone. Just great!

Gaëlle has a lovely reassuring teaching style that is motivating whilst giving feedback in order that you can progress through her lessons. Plenty of advice and one to one help. I am now using my new found skills to make squares that will eventually 'grow up' into a blanket. Easy to follow handouts for reference.
