    What you'll learn

    Let Obby help subdue those crochet cravings; head on down to Battersea for this un-rivalled beginners crochet course hosted by The Old School Club.

    In this class

    You'll be getting more than you've bargained for on this unique course which runs over two classes. But beware: you are required to do homework in between classes and the sanctions for failure to complete homework can be perilous (no cakes at the end for you!).

    First class:

    Learn and practice the main crochet stitches:

    • chain stitch
    • double and treble crochet
    • increasing and decreasing

    The first session is really about familiarising yourself with the yarn and crochet hooks, meeting new people, and having a great time!

    Second class:

    This, ladies and gentleman, is the business end of the class. You've earned the power to crochet whatever you want. Well, maybe not whatever you want, but two things in particular that'll look fabulous at home or as a gift.

    #Granny squares

    With some bright and colourful yarn, you'll learn how to read a pattern (not as tasking as it sounds!) and make a cute little granny square. Take it home so you can make a full blanket, for those cold winter nights.

    #XL crochet bag

    Go big or go home with some big yarn and an even bigger crochet hook! Develop those skills from the first session even further and master a XL Crochet; creating a beautiful handbag or a rug (for those even colder winter nights).

    By the way:

    For the class you will need:

    • 1x 120m ball of yarn
    • 1x bamboo crochet hook size 10 or 12

    Don't worry if you can't find/buy any, The Old School Club sell both yarn and crochet hooks (DMC Hooked Zpagetti with a variety of colours).

    About your host, The Old School Club

    A creative club to learn skills, make unique creations and feel inspired.

    The Old School Club is a welcoming creative hub, based in Battersea, South West London. The founder, Inma Goodhew, is part-time mother of two children, part-time creative visionary. Growing up in an environment where everything was handmade, personalised and familiar, her inventive upbringing lead to a passion for sharing her skills with others. Yet Inma hit a frustrating block, where, on maternity leave, she wanted to take some creative classes but there was nowhere in London aimed at parents with children. so Inma formed a sewing club and hired babysitters to look after the babies whilst the mums were learning and making. This started to grow into something much bigger, much quicker than Inma could imagine; from a network of young mothers to a devoted community, breeding creativity.

    Inma found that making things for herself, her family and her home allowed her to learn, improve and practice everything she know. Having done it all her life, she now uses her broad range of skills and styles to advise her clients on everything, from colours & patterns, to fabrics and furniture styling. Her true expertise lies in teaching beginners and keen crafters how to sew, paint, style furniture, upcycle, master embroidery and nail DIY projects. Her classes are always informative, bespoke, friendly, but most importantly, great fun.

    Inma appreciates that, as a mother of two, mums need their down time and it comes in no better form than getting creative and being social with other mums.   Inma is rightly proud of her bold career u-turn, transforming her profession from a senior IT role, to doing something she was truly passionate about - teaching, making and sharing with other creatives her entrepreneurial journey.
