If you’re looking for a new hobby and are in a creative mood, crochet is just the thing for you. Learn how to wield a crochet hook and create something special in these classes for absolute beginners.
Each Crochet for Beginners class is designed for those who have had little to no experience with a crochet hook, or those who have used a crochet hook a little and would like to build on their basic crochet knowledge.
Throughout the class, your host will go through the basic crochet stitches, such as double crochet, treble crochet, chain stitch, slip stitch, their abbreviations and how to change colours while crocheting in the round. Learning the basic stitches will allow you to continue your crochet journey after the class.
As you start on your own Granny Square or work on your Soft Bowl, the crochet host is there to help when you get stuck and assist as you practice your new skills.
For the class dedicated to Granny Squares, you will use acrylic yarn to begin your crochet journey, learning the foundations of creating a granny square. Many granny squares can be joined together to create a blanket, or join just a few together to create a tea cosy.
The class dedicated to creating a Soft Bowl will use a chunky, eco-friendly recycled T-shirt yarn and focus on its many benefits. You will leave the class with a unique and personal soft bowl that you have created yourself, a decorative soft bowl that can be used for nearly anything.
Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. Participants will be provided with all the equipment on the day, including an aluminium crochet hook, sample patterns, and appropriate yarn.
A complimentary standard-size non-alcoholic beverage is included as part of the class price.
Come along to a Crochet for Beginners class and learn the beginning steps of a versatile and fun lifelong skill.

Sophie was a fun and very patient teacher.
She worked to all the groups capabilities constantly checking who needed extra help. The cafe environment made it feel more like a friends catch up rather than a “class”. I would thoroughly recommend it. 5/5 by Meri Prcevich 21-7-2018

The class was a great introduction to crochet. Our host was very patient and gave each of us attention and instruction for our skill level. As a complete beginner, by the end of the class I felt comfortable holding the hook and the yarn, and finished with a crochet bowl. 5/5 by Cherelle Hopper 4-2-2018
