For obvious reasons… I’m only teaching online at the moment!
I’m so thankful for technology solutions such as Zoom these days, because they mean I can still teach crochet… online! I’ve worked out the best way to replicate a classroom setting, and my students benefit from a fun and convenient teaching experience.
Live crochet workshops via Zoom on Wednesday mornings 10am-12pm UK time

Here's what some of my lovely past students have to say about working with me
Thoroughly enjoyable snowflake workshop under the patient guidance of Gaëlle. Lovely friendly atmosphere and expert advice with a welcome side of tea and biscuits. I look forward to our next workshop.
Really enjoyed this course. The tutor Gaëlle is very patient and pleasant and very good explaining how to learn new techniques. It was nice to make something all in one without having joins.
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.
Hard work but well worth the effort!! I’m so pleased with the end result, and to have made something three dimensional! As ever Gaëlle has the patience of a saint; as I was the last person on the course to complete the basket she helped me to stay focused and not give up! Can’t wait for the next 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.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course.
I did a course with Gaëlle on reading crochet charts. It was a very informative and useful day. I have since made things using the charts and it’s so much easier than ploughing through text. She is a clear teacher as well as a friendly person. We had a lovely session.
Really enjoyed the course! Having taught myself to crochet, many years earlier, I was very rusty. Gaëlle made it fun and made it seem very easy. She was an excellent teacher and was very patient. I finished my shawl in record time. The handouts she gave are extremely helpful. I would recommend anyone to attend one of her courses.
Gaëlle is a superb teacher she explains everything clearly and logically and is always helpful. The class was fun and we all had a lovely time. I was so enthused that I carried on making more and more snowflakes when I went home so then I had enough for a window display. I also tried one with a very fine wool that looked good on the Christmas tree. I have booked on another class with Gaëlle, and I’m really looking forward to it.
Lovely 3 hour workshop which was so helpful! There were 6 of us with Gaëlle which was perfect. It made for a lovely atmosphere and it meant that we had lots of opportunities to get individual help and advice from her. We made 3 of the snowflakes and each one showed a different skill. I’m not the best at crochet but along with the snowflakes, Gaëlle offered some hints and tips to help me in my general crocheting and this was invaluable help! She was really friendly and approachable and I’d definitely attend another workshop with her. My crochet projects have come on in leaps and bounds since the snowflake workshop.
Very clearly explained by Gaëlle. Very impressed with the result of Tunisian crochet. Could almost be mistaken for knitting. Look forward to another session with Gaëlle.
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!
Gaëlle advertised a one day “refresher” course which was just what I needed having taught myself to crochet many years ago and not quite sure what I was doing! It turned out that because someone had cancelled at the last minute, I was the only pupil. Gaëlle kindly still ran the session which was brilliant. She is such a good teacher; very patient and answered all my questions. She gave handouts too which are very useful. I would thoroughly recommend her.
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.
