Crochet courses, classes and workshops taught all across the UK. Learn the techniques of crochet and you'll gain an enjoyable and useful hobby for life. The word 'crochet' means hook. Unlike in knitting only one hook is used in crochet and basically it entails pulling one loop of thread through another. If only it were really that simple! Crochet work can be fine and elaborate, demanding great patience and skill to create a highly decorative woven fabric. I am always astounded at the speed and dexterity of the experienced crochet expert with their fingers so deft and assured. Crochet can be used to make simple but beautiful blankets and covers by building up a patchwork of smaller pieces. You can also make gorgeous crocheted hats and garments. Would you like to learn how to do crochet? Come and join a crochet course, workshop or group and be inspired by an expert crochet teacher who will share their skill with you.
