I thoroughly enjoyed learning all the basics on crochet in one day. It has made my ambitions go beyond just being able to make granny squares having seen all of the inspiring work Kasturi shared with us during the day. She has such patience.
I have just enjoyed this course. The teacher was excellent. She was friendly, easy to talk to and had planned and paced the day really well. We covered every aspect of crochet, from different types of hooks and yarns to reading and understanding patterns. We also were taught the stitches and techniques so that it was possible to create our own piece of work. From complete novice to this all in one day!
highly recommend this course .Kasturi is very patient, had no problem with me being left handed.
very patient and understanding how hard it is for a left handed person to learn how to crotchet.
fantastic day, lots of fun .a great teacher
I can not recommend Kasturi highly enough for her kind and calm manner when teaching crochet. She always inspires confidence and creativity and is always so patient with everyone. I thoroughly enjoy her workshops and always have a fun filled day and come home so inspired and rearing to continue my crochet at home.
Kasturi is a very inspiring teacher and I really enjoyed the class. Having not picked up a crochet hook for 30 years she started me off again and wasn't in the least bit fazed by me being a left hander and doing everything the wrong way round. i would thoroughly recommend this workshop to anyone who is a complete beginner or just rather rusty !
If you want to learn to crochet, want to improve or just want to share ideas and techniques with a brilliant teacher you can't go wrong with any of Kasturi's courses. Kasturi is patient, intuitive and inspiring and has certainly encouraged me to experiment and believe in my crochet skills.
One of the most wonderful things about this course is Kasturi. She has the patience of a saint, and helps each individual overcome crotchet problems with clarity and kindness. Her instructions are clear. She brought along what seemed like hundreds of examples of items to illustrate what it was possible to make. We learned some simple 'trade' secrets, and were encouraged to progress at an individual pace. No one was made to feel that they were holding the class back. I went away from the one day course with the skills to crotchet anything. Have a go!
Both my daughter and I had tried to teach ourselves to crochet over the years without much success. One day with thus amazing lady and we had learned a new skill - finally :D my daughter is left handed and it took a few simple adjustments by Kasturi and she was away (and far neater than I am :D ). We can't recommend her highly enough.
If you want to learn crochet Kasturi is the one to get you hooked. Although I already thought I knew how to crochet, Kasturi is the crochet guru - a fun teacher who inspires her now faithful woolly followers.
I had been trying to teach myself to crochet for years, without success. My dream was to learn how to do a granny square!
I saw the 'Learn to Crochet in a Day' course advertised and I jumped at the chance.
I must say that it's the best thing I ever did and Kasturi the tutor was so clear and patient with us, it all seemed to click!
I'm now crocheting my granny squares and have made blankets, bath mats, you name it!
A fab course!
