Learn to Crochet for Beginners

A full introduction to learning the basics of crochet. This course is suitable for complete beginners, those that have dabbled and got stuck, and those that would like to continue to practice beginner level skills and patterns.

We start from the very beginning, with how to hold the hook and yarn and work at your pace to begin creating your first small pieces such as coasters and flowers.

Beginners Crochet


After trying & failing on my own to crochet I was delighted to attend the beginners course. A friendly group of true beginners were expertly led through the basic skills & I now feel able to start simple creative projects.


Crochet for beginners


Very informative and worth every penny! I definitely learned a lot on this course. Would highly recommend.


Perfect class for beginners; perfect teacher


This a great introductory class for beginners to crochet! I can’t recommend Lisa, the teacher, enough. She is a fabulous, very patient, and very encouraging teacher. Having previously taken a similar class at another college, I struggled awfully in that class and felt defeated. Four years later, I’ve picked up the class again and I’m hooked. I get it now and can happily crochet away while relaxing in front of the TV in the evening; a perfect activity for the darker, colder nights when we withdraw to our cosy sofas. Pick up those hooks and yarn, you won’t regret it…
