New 4 Week Beginners Crochet Course – 29th October – 19th November 2016


I am running a new beginner’s course at the Riverhouse Arts Centre in Walton-on-Thames starting at the end of October 2016.
This course is for you if :

  • You have never crocheted before.
  • You have crocheted in the past but are a bit rusty.
  • 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
  • chaining
  • 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.

Course dates:
Saturday 29th October 2016 – Saturday 19th November 2016, 14:30 – 16:30.

Cost: £45

Please download the booking form from here.  A deposit of £20 will be required (paid to Riverhouse Barn) to secure your spot.

Materials required:
3.5mm crochet hook.
200g of DK cotton yarn, preferably in at least two different colours. I would strongly recommond using Stylecraft Classique Cotton. Acrylic, chunky and novelty yarns are not the best choice for learning.
Wool/tapestry needle.

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 interest!
