Next dates: Weds 24th July, 31st July and 7th August, 2pm – 3.30pm

Held in our shop at 32a Southbourne Grove, Bournemouth, BH6 3RA.  Three-week course.

For those who have never crocheted before or anyone who is a bit rusty and needs a refresher to get their confidence back.

This 3-week course will aim to take you from zero to granny square.  Classes are small so we can give you the attention you need in the beginning stages.  You will be working up to creating granny squares, learning different stitches along the way.  Once you can make a granny square, the sky’s the limit!  You can create bags, scarves, garments and more.

There’s a bit of homework required between each week, to practice and hone the techniques learnt and come to class the following week with any questions.  It’s a bit like learning to play a musical instrument – practice makes progress!

The price includes a soft-grip crochet hook and a how-to crochet book worth £14.99 … and refreshments!

Please note the following:

  • We cannot stress enough the importance of regular practice at home afterwards to hone your technique.
  • Left-handers will be taught the same way as right-handers.  We find this works best, as the left hand does quite a bit of the work, and almost all patterns are written for right-handers.  Both our daughters are left-handed and have learnt this way.
  • We run ‘next steps’ crochet workshops for those wishing to undertake their first project such as a bag or shawl or cushion cover
  • Our workshops are non-refundable – please refer to summary T&Cs below:

Booking our classes is similar to making a theatre booking, the ‘show must go on’ regardless of your attendance, therefore classes are non-refundable and sadly there are no catch-up opportunities for missed sessions. Please do check your diary carefully before booking a class.

Workshop bookings require payment in full either through the website or in the shop with payment via cash, voucher or card.  Gift Voucher bookings can be made by in the shop.
