Learn to crochet
Who is this course for?
This workshop will cover some basic crochet stitches needed to make a granny square. Suitable for everyone.
We will crochet a basic granny square to get you started which you can then develop into a larger project – cushion, bag or blanket – after the workshop.
Support and feedback
Your tutor will be there for assistance and advice. You will complete a learning plan for course over 9 hours with your tutor to enable you to monitor your progress.
Additional costs and requirements
Yes, you will need to have your own materials and equipment.
You will need to bring a 4mm crochet hook and some double knitting yarn in a few colours. Mixed bags of yarn can often be found in charity shops – these would be ideal.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?
