Event Details

Crochet is a great alternative and also complimentary technique to knitting. It is more freestyle, great for lacey designs, 3d shapes and can also be used to embellish and join your knitting,

Our Beginners Crochet classes have been developed to meet the needs of those wishing to take the first steps 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.

Join Aikeda Watson who will guide you with practical help and tips, give observations and feedback with your learning. “Knitting and Crochet have always been a part of my world. My passion to create amazing crafts from yarn was nurtured as a young child. My decades of experience varies from making baby wear, fashion accessories to large bed throws. I have also taught these skills to many across different age ranges. I am delighted to continue passing on this joy to many more” Aikeda

This class is a natural follow on to our first “Beginners Crochet”  It’s also a good class for those that already know the basic stitches but perhaps havn’t yet ventured into making items using a pattern.
