Get hooked on Crochet

There are a few places left for my next course - book online now to avoid disappointment! 

Crochet for All Course - 17th to 19th August

If you are a crochet beginner why not join the "Crochet for All" course taking place at Missenden Abbey on 17th to 19th August 2016.

This course aims to get you hooked on crochet and will teach you how to:

  • how to start and finish 
  • crochet basic stitches
  • work in rows and rounds
  • change colours
  • follow patterns and charts

We will:

  • make a cushion cover out of motif squares, including Granny square, Ripple and a Flower.
  • have time to learn and practise, with projects to start and work on in your free time. 
  • have a problem solving session so why not bring along a project that you are working on too.

After the course you should be confident in starting and finishing a project, be able to read a pattern, or refresh your technique.

The course is for beginners, for those who may have crocheted in the past and want to refresh their skills and for those who may crochet already and want to improve their pattern reading, joining techniques and gain hints and tips to make their crochet more professional.

Looking forward to teaching this course and welcoming you to this wonderful location!

Check out Missenden Abbey website for more details and how to book. There are two price options, one is residential at a cost of £370 or non-residential at £238 for the 3 day course. The course runs from Wednesday at 9.15am to Friday at 3.00pm.
