Crochet for Beginners - Discover your 'crojo'


About the Course

Have you ever wanted to learn to crochet. I am a crochet teacher with over 3 years experience. I will help you start your crochet journey from the very beginning. A patient and friendly teacher, you will come away from the lesson with a new crochet addiction. By using some easy technology, I can offer a lesson, where, as long as you have access to a laptop or tablet with a camera, we can chat and see each other, whilst I talk you through and demonstrate the techniques. I also have an additional camera which will enable you to see my hands and watch how I crochet as we go and work together.

The lessons also include written instructions which I will send you prior to your lesson, for us to reference during the lesson but also for you to refer back to when you are crocheting along on your own!

The following are some examples of beginner modules, however I am happy to be flexible with the lessons and if there is a particular technique you would like support with, we can work on this together.

Hook explanation and holding your hook.
