Last week I took you through a summary of the beginners classes that we offer. If you missed it, you can catch up here. This week, I thought I’d provide details of the other crochet classes that we run. We are very lucky to work with Denise from Peeko Crochet for our classes. Denise is a very experienced tutor and an expert in all things crochet from amigurumi to Tunisian lace! You can read more about her inspirations and how she learnt to crochet in our interview with her here.
This class is the follow up to Beginners Crochet allowing you to use the stitches you learnt in new ways. The Granny Square is probably the most well known crochet design and is used in everything from blankets to cushions. It has a real shabby chic vibe making it perfect for use in vintage inspired projects or make it modern by changing to a funky, bright colour scheme.
The class will also cover other shapes based on the same principle. How about a Granny Heart or Triangle? If you’re feeling inspired we still have a few places available this Saturday afternoon from 2-4:30, places cost £30.

Next Steps Crochet
If you’ve seen a fabulous pattern but are struggling with the instructions, this is the perfect class for you. Bring along your pattern and stitch queries and have them solved. From the basics of amigurumi to a complex shawl, we can help. This class is designed so that you can attend it more than once and still learn something new each time.

Have you ever seen a really long crochet hook and wondered what it is for? This class will solve that mystery and more! Tunisian Crochet is a sort of crochet-knitting hybrid, on one row you work multiple stitched on to the hook and then on the next row you work them off again.
The resulting fabric is something quite unique in its own right. This class is suitable for those who have never tried Tunisian Crochet before as well as those who already have some knowledge and want to learn different stitches or how to follow a pattern.
