Come and join me in the Crochet Cabin and learn how to crochet something new!
Relaxed and friendly, my workshops have anywhere between 2-6 people (which is a great chance to meet new people and talk about crochet!) and include the yarn, pattern, as much tea and coffee as you can drink and some delicious biscuits.
Please note: apart from learn to crochet sessions, all workshops require a basic knowledge of how to crochet.
If you can already crochet a little bit, but are not very confident, my Beginners’ Crochet Workshop is definitely for you! Bring along your hook and I’ll teach you a few more basic stitches that can be used to make things like hearts and flowers, as well as hats, scarves and gloves etc. We’ll also look at reading some basic patterns too.
Groovy Granny Squares
After you’ve mastered the treble stitch in the Learn to Crochet session, come back and learn how to make the very popular granny square. Granny squares are so versatile; they can be used for blankets, cushion covers and many other things.
Increasing & Descreasing
There are lots of patterns out there that require you to be able to increase and decrease stitches so in this workshop I’ll teach you how to do it! We’ll make a 3D stuffed heart – a perfect little gift for someone.
V Shape Scarf
Once you’ve mastered the basic crochet technique and have a stitch or 2 up your sleeve, come back and learn how to make a light and airy V shaped scarf. These scarves are actually quite easy to make once you get started and become quite addictive very quickly!

Basic Pattern Reading
