Beginners Crochet Course


This is a class for complete beginners.  We will cover the three basic crochet stitches (double, half treble & treble), tension and reading a pattern.  We will finish the class by learning how to make crochet roses.

After this 2 week course you should be in a position to read a basic pattern and create simple items of clothing, blankets and flowers etc.  There will be a small amount of homework between each class (1 hour minimum).

Booking is essential as the class is limited to 4 students.  Tea & coffee will be served.  This 2 week course will cost £65 per head.  Please be advised these classes are extremely popular and often book up 4-6 months in advance. We only run a handful of in person classes per year and encourage you to book onto our Semi Virtual course (details below) if you simply cannot wait to get going.

As an added extra you will also receive all of your materials in one of our printed kit bags with a full printed instruction book.  You will have access to our online training videos for future use and for help at home, this will be indefinitely.  (The online course retails at £25 and is included in the price for all ‘physical’ pupils)

If you cannot make any of the dates listed or if you simply cannot wait to get started then we also run this course as a Semi Virtual option.  You will receive a kit and access to our online videos and support group and can start as soon as your kit arrives in the post.  Alternatively if you would rather dedicate time to your learning you can book to come into the studio with your ipad or laptop and undertake your course with Claire on hand should you get stuck (not that you will).  Just order your kit and drop a line in the description box requesting some time slots and we will give you a call.

*PLEASE NOTE this class is taught right handed.  If you are left handed then you will find you have an advantage over a right handed person in that you hold the yarn in your left hand which is your dominant hand! The majority of crochet patterns are written for right handed people and you will not have to learn to translate them!  Feel free to call and speak to Claire for more information on this method before booking.

    After deciding to spend a few years being a stay at home Mum I decided I needed to learn something new, just for me, and by chance discovered Claire’s beginners crochet course. She made learning something completely new simple and fun, and a year on I’m still loving crochet. I highly recommend this course.

    I had wanted to learn to crochet for so many years, but even though I can knit and turn my hand to pretty much any other craft, I just couldn’t pick up crocheting. I have tried to follow tutorials but I just couldn’t master it. So when my friend booked us onto this course I felt sceptical about whether it would help me.
    I was so wrong! Even though I felt all fingers and thumbs at first, Claire’s ability to teach and guide is excellent. She offers easy to understand instructions and back up video tutorials that I still refer back to. These are so good for reinforcing what you learn in class, but to be honest, they are so clear, if you cannot get to class, you will definitely learn to crochet by following them. I should also mention that you get a lovely bag of goodies included to kick start your crocheting. You feel like you’re going home with a present!
    I loved going to the classes though. They are run in a beautiful setting. Claire’s workshop is full of inspirational projects. Attending the Beginner’s Crochet course has definitely inspired a love of crocheting for me and gave me the ability and drive to immediately sign up for the Intermediate Crochet course.

    Recently completed this course and it was fantastic I’ve learnt so much by purchasing this course. Claire is the most amazing tutor she’s so patient and explains everything so well so it’s easy to follow. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to learn crochet.

    This is an excellent course and Claire is a great tutor. Since the course I’ve been able to follow patterns to make a beanie, cushion cover, and some amigurumi pieces, phone cover, and wrist warmers (nearly finished!). Thoroughly enjoying being a hooker :)
