About the Course
Come and have fun whilst learning a new skill! It's easy peasy!
Learn the basic skills with examples to follow from. Then go on to learn how to crochet two simple flowers. Following on we try a mini 'granny square.' Then progress to a larger square with change of colours. Plus lots of tips with books to look at, and crochet patterns for you to take away.
I can also help with those crochet patterns that are proving a problem!
Maximum 4 people.

A lovely half day learning Crochet with Yvonne. I had some basic knowledge so she taught all I needed to know about different yarn, stitches and most importantly, where I was going wrong. Other people on the course were on different levels but this was handled very well by Yvonne and everyone could learn at their own pace. Thank you :))

Response from Tasty Textiles:Thank you Heidi. Yvonne.
I can thoroughly recommend this course. From having never done any crochet before I now feel very accomplished. We completed a flower and a granny's square in the morning as well as learning the basic crochet stitches and how to start etc. The course was very enjoyable and Yvonne was a good teacher allowing everyone to go at their pace.

Response from Tasty Textiles:Thank you very much, keep on going! Yvonne.
I enjoyed the crochet course and came away feeling much more confident. Yvonne is calm and patient and happy to go at your speed. The three hours whizzed past and it felt productive. Instructions are written clearly and wool and book recommendations are provided. Thank you Yvonne!

A super workshop - finally I can now crochet! We had a really good morning, a lovely small group and Yvonne is a great teacher. Really enjoyed it - thank you Yvonne.

Thank you Yvonne - I can crochet! I've been going round in circles for years but, thanks to you, I can now go round in squares - granny squares. Looking forward to transforming my wool stash into a granny bedspread. Really enjoyed this small friendly course. Excellent.

Response from Tasty Textiles:Well done!
A really good course, and a lovely teacher. I came home and was able to start a traditional granny square, something I've been trying to do on my own without success. Books and You Tube are fine but nothing beats being in the same room with a great teacher. Thank you.

Response from Tasty Textiles:Well done Ali, keep it up!
Completed the 3 hour crochet course which worked a treat. The guidance and help was easy to follow as Yvonne tailors it to each individuals level, making sure we could all create each stage with flowers and square. Very enjoyable.

Response from Tasty Textiles:Thank you for your review Marian!
Yvonne was excellent at showing us how to do the basic stitches required for most patterns and we got to make a flower and a granny square. I also learnt how to decipher the pattern codes. It all makes so much more sense now. Thank you.

I tried the 'Can't crochet, won't crochet' course with Yvonne, it was brilliant, has got me started on the right track, all I need now is a follow on course, maybe bring a pattern and Yvonne can help you work through it?

Have been wanting - and trying - to learn to crochet for years without much success (books, online videos etc, not to mention a course in a busy, noisy shop - hopeless if, like me, you're hearing impaired!) But now I can, thanks to Yvonne's excellent half-day course. Perfect environment - warm, comfortable, welcoming and quiet - and being part of a small group helped enormously. Yvonne is such a good tutor: knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient; she gave plenty of individual help and guidance, answered all our questions, and provided very good handouts. The course was excellent value too; I left feeling truly inspired and couldn't wait to crack on with those granny squares! Highly recommended - definitely a 5* course.

I booked this workshop as a surprise for my Mum as we've been saying for years that we'd learn to Crochet.
Yvonne's course was perfect. Being a small group meant that we had enough one to one tuition to ensure that we'd all grasped each stage before moving on. Yvonne made sure that we all felt confident that we would be able to follow a pattern on our own after the course. It was just exactly what we wanted, great fun, such good value for money!
I would highly recommend this course.

Have been trying to get to grips with crochet for a few years but never managed it. Even paid for an expensive all day course in London but couldn't do it - even after lots of effort.
Yvonne's course however, was just what I needed - it has finally clicked! Individual tuition, simple instructions & patience were all that were needed. If you've always wanted to learn or just brush up your skills, give Yvonne a try, you won't regret it

Had a really good 3 hours being shown crochet stitches and came away having learnt the art of crochet.
Time well spent, a good teacher, an enjoyable session with tea and biscuits thrown in. well worth the money.
