Crochet is a great alternative and also complimentary technique to knitting. It is more freestyle than knitting, great for lacey designs, 3d shapes or use it to embelish and join your knitting,

Beginners Crochet has been developed to meet the needs of those wishing to take the first step into the world of crochet. These classes will not only introduce the participants to the fundamentals of crochet but also to practical advice on yarns, hooks and pattern reading.

In the afternoon progress your morning skills to progress or create something really fabulous (if you are jewellry making).
