6 hour class
For those who want to get to grips with crochet basics, this technique is more freestyle than knitting, great for lacey designs, 3D shapes, or can even be used to embellish and join your knitting! So, whether you fancy learning an alternative to knitting, or just want to try something new, this introduction to crochet class offers a little bit of everything.
Join Tone Ward who has a friendly and thorough teaching style who will guide you through step by step, offer feedback/observations and answer any questions as they arise.
