Come along to our Crochet class for complete beginners or refreshers beginning during week beginning 16th March.
A choice of morning or evening is available in Inverness.
During this five week course, you’ll not only learn all the basic stitches giving you a thorough grounding in the craft of crochet, but you’ll also learn how to read patterns both in UK terms and US terms to ensure you get the very best out of your newly acquired skill!
Throughout the course we’ll explore each stitch by working on small projects to make sure that you are entirely comfortable with each stitch before moving on to the next.
The key to learning a skill such as crochet is practice and you will be assigned a small amount of homework each week to consolidate what you have learned in class.
A crochet starter pack will be provided but you should bring along one of each of the following balls of yarn:
100g ball of Chunky yarn
50g ball of Aran
20g double knitting cotton (or cotton mix)
A wool pack is available to purchase which will include all the yarns you need and this will be supplied to you at the first class. This pack is available to book/purchase here:...or you can choose to supply your own wool – this can be purchased or you can use up yarns you already have in your cupboard just ensure that you have at least the amounts I have noted above which you will need to complete our projects.
The colours of the wool should be a middle to light colour, as it its difficult to work with dark colours. Please also avoid fancy yarns as it’s difficult to learn how to crochet using fancy yarn!
Pre-booking is essential and the course costs £60. There are a maximum of six places on the crochet course to ensure everyone gets the individual attention that they need to progress and it is strictly first come, first served I’m afraid.
The venue for the morning class (10am – 11.30am Thursdays) is Magpie Wool and Craft, Old Edinburgh Road, Inverness and, for the evening class, it is The Apprentice Store, Castle House, Fairways Business Park, Inverness (6pm – 7.30pm Tuesday evenings). The classes will run for 5 weeks.
Courses will only run if I have a minimum of three participants. In the event that I have to cancel the course, a full refund will be given.
In the event of your cancellation, refunds will only be possible if I am able to fill your place.
Please book as soon as possible as places are limited.
