Crochet is one of the oldest crafts in the world and is today labeled as the new ‘Metal Yoga’. Research shows there are many health and wellbeing benefits to repetitive crafts such as crochet. So come and join the crafting craze and craft yourself something uniquely yours. Challenge yourself to use all 10 fingers at once and relax into a mindful, rhythmic activity at the same time.

This is a course that makes learning crochet fun while teaching you everything from how to hold the hook and yarn, starting a chain to learning how to make the basic stitches, counting stitches and rows and reading patterns. It is designed as a complete introductory course in crochet. You don’t need any previous experience. Just come along and have fun. All materials are provided.

Participants will be exposed to various projects and will leave with ideas to makes either a bag, gloves or a scarf. They will also have multiple ideas for projects stemming from concepts learnt in class.

I’ve been to other craft courses in other community courses and the classes had too many students so I never enjoy them – thank you for lettings us have a small and very enjoyable class to learn crochet properly!"
