Do you want to learn to crochet?
I am running a new beginner’s course at the Riverhouse Arts Centre in Walton-on-Thames starting January 2019.
This course is for you if :
- You have never crocheted before.
- You have crocheted in the past but are a bit rusty or you would like to build your confidence with basic stitches.
- You are self taught either from books and/or the internet and want to clarify areas that you are unsure of or worried that you might be doing incorrectly.
I use a specially developed small project to teach you how to make a solid granny square.
You will learn all the essential techniques that can be applied to most basic projects such as:
- choosing the right size hook and yarn
- how to hold your hook and yarn
- slip stitch, single & double crochet
- how to make a square
- how to change colours
- how to join motifs using sewing and crochet
- how to make a cord
- how to finish off
The course includes:
4 x 2 hour practical classes, spread over 4 weeks.
Detailed class notes including photos to help you practise at home.
Email support during the duration of the course.
Saturday 15th September 2018 – Saturday 8th October 2018, 15:30 – 17:30.
Week 1: Saturday 19th January 2019, 15:30 – 17:30
Week 2: Saturday 26th January 2019, 15:30 – 17:30.
Week 3: Saturday 2nd February 2019, 15:30 – 17:30.
Week 4: Saturday 9th February 2019, 15:30 – 17:30.
Please note: You can still get a lot out of the course, even if you have to skip some of the weeks, however, Week 1 & Week 2 are obligatory.
Please complete the online booking form from here. Full payment of the course is required to secure your place and places are given on a “first paid” basis
3.5mm crochet hook.
200g of DK cotton yarn, preferably in at least two different colours. I would strongly recommend using Stylecraft Classique Cotton or Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK. (Acrylic, chunky and novelty yarns are not the best choice for learning).
I can provide the materials above as a starter kit for £12 which can be purchased at the first class (please order beforehand).
This is a great way to learn a new hobby in a friendly setting where you can meet other students with similar interests as well as supporting your local arts centre!
To express an interest or for more details, please contact me.
I also list my classes on Meetup.
