3 hours beginners crochet and beyond - East Grinstead

Learn to crochet


Don’t be put off if you’ve tried to crochet and following a book or YouTube hasn’t worked for you - I can help! This 1 to 1 crochet lesson is for 3 hours and for absolute beginning onward. If you already crochet but just need a little help to progress I can help you with that! Reading patterns, changing colours, working in a round - problem solving any issues you have with your crochet. Want to start a new more advanced pattern and need some guidance to begin - I’m happy to help you work on whatever you’d like.

In the absolute beginners class, you will learn the basics of crochet. We start with slip knot, chain, then double crochet and treble crochet. We discuss the difference between uk/usa terms and how to spot what the patterns written in, yarn & hook info and I can answer any questions you have as we go. You’ll also get a hook and yarn to take home.

If you have a group of friends that would like a class together I can do a discount depending on how many people you’d like to attend (discount for 4+). You can all work on separate patterns or work together on a pattern. Feel free to message and let me know, what you'd like to do and we can arrange accordingly.

I (Nicole) have been crocheting for 10 years and teaching for over 3 years. I love to crochet and really love teaching crochet.

Times and days can be flexible so together we can arrange a convenient time :-

Monday - Friday -- 10:30am - 7pm
Saturdays & Sunday -- 11am - 4:30pm

I can possibly do outside these times - just send me a message and we can arrange times.

It also doesn’t have to be a beginners lesson, we can do a recap, beginners plus lesson or just about anything you’d like to learn to crochet. I can help with this too, just let me know your requirements.

I’m very flexible and can do mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Beginners get a hook and yarn to take home.

If it’s not absolute beginners please bring your preferred yarn and hook to work with.

Tea/coffee/squash/water & biscuits supplied.

I really enjoyed my session with Nicole. I was a complete beginner but Nicole was very patient while I tried to masters the basics. I look forward to going back for another session!

Nicole, was amazing, she really took her time to ensure that I had picked up the basic stitches. I had wanted to this for a long time and she has given me the confidence to start on my crochet journey. Im using this as a tool to help control some anxiety issues I am facing and I can say it really takes your mind off things.

Also being a man Nicole made me feel complete at ease. I am looking forward to progressing and hopefully make some items and feel more creative.

Thankyou Nicole

I attended one of Nicole’s beginner classes in 2019 which reignited my interest in crochet. Since then I have attended the crochet along classes and recently a Christmas class, all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have completed some lovely projects. Nicole is so helpful and I have met lovely like-minded people at these sessions. Really recommend.

Dianne Gray - - #36171

Learning to crochet was on my bucket list, I had never picked up a crochet hook until I attended Nicole’s beginners class, and thanks to her I have found a new hobby I love. Without her calm patience I would have given up, instead, I have, over the course of about three years, progressed from making a rather scrappy wonky coaster to being confident enough create a range of increasingly challenging projects and intend to carry on crocheting as long as I can.
The atmosphere in her classes is always relaxed, everyone is friendly and I have met some lovely ladies. I always look forward to the lessons and drop in sessions.
Thanks again Nicole for your encouragement. !!Keep Crocheting!!

Nicole is so patient at teaching and her classes are lovely to attend.
It is lovely to meet with a small group of like minded ladies with free flowing tea and coffee!
I would not hesitate to recommend her classes to anyone.

Response from Just My Cup Of Crochet:

Thank you Carrie. I hope your mum likes her shawl. I’ll look forward to seeing you in the new year! 😊

Nicole was very welcoming and patient and I felt I learnt a lot on the first lesson, so much so that I can’t wait to carry on to the next stage.

Ann Brown - - #23737

A really good course, Nicole is very knowledgable and makes the course interesting and informative. At the same time the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly so you’re not afraid to ask her questions, I love the way she can explain the correct and simplest way to do something and help put you on the right track when things don’t seem to be working out quite right! You come away feeling you’ve accomplished something, as well as confident and ready to have a go all on your own 😊

I had wanted to learn to crochet for sometime and had failed miserably trying to learn from books and videos. I saw this class and thought I would give it a go. Nicole was really welcoming making me feel relaxed and confident straight away. She was very patient and kind as well as being a great host. I learnt the basics and came away feeling that I can actually crochet. Since attending her class I have not stopped and have just completed my first baby blanket. I have also attended another class with Nicole and will be going to more. I think you could say I'm well and truly hooked! I cannot recommend highly enough.

Jo Rogers - - #23416

Nicole is an excellent teacher and explains things really clearly. The mandala involves lots of different stitches so it takes a while but the pace is just right and Nicole gives lots of help and advice as we go along. A small group size means you get lots of individual attention. She also inspires us with the amazing crocheting she does herself! A really enjoyable way to spend a few hours and definitely worth the cost. Plus you get free tea and biscuits! Lovely!

Carrie King - - #23366

Nicole is a great teacher....very patient and knowledgeable. The classes are taught in her home which is very comfortable and with good lighting. Tea and biscuits are in full supply and it is nice to make new friends.
I went to the first class as a complete novice and came away knowing several stitches.
I am now "hooked" and have signed up to more of Nicole's classes. They are very friendly and relaxed.
I would highly recommend these classes for all levels.
