About the Course

Have you ever wanted to learn to crochet, or maybe brush up on an old skill? You have come to the right place. My crochet workshops are designed to inspire and ignite creativity, from beginner classes through to teaching advanced students. Wherever your skills lie there will be something for you.

Classes vary from teaching the complete beginner, to days teaching the art of the granny square (and there are many, many beautiful designs out there to choose from!) I also offer courses staged over a few weeks to help build your knowledge and experience so you are able to approach a bigger project with confidence.

For as long as I can remember I have loved textiles - knitting, crochet, spinning, yarn dyeing and felting, to name just a few. There is nothing I like more than to share this passion with others, which is why I began teaching.

I teach in small groups so as each student gets sufficient support. Everyone in the class will be working at the same level which will ensure you feel at ease with the pace of the lesson. There will be lots of inspiration, samples and books to hand to get the creative juices flowing. There will be plenty of varied yarns to choose from and work with.

These classes are a lot of fun and packed full of information, hopefully you will become hooked... If you would like to book a course please contact me for more details on availability. I would love to hear from you!
1:1 session for 90 minutes = £35
Group session for 2 hours = £30

What's included in the price?

Crochet hooks are provided for the day, but if you prefer to bring your own or would like advice on which to bring I will happily give advice. All yarns are provided, there will be an array of fibres, colours and weights to choose from.

There will also be plenty of tea, coffee and juice to keep us going and of course biscuits!
If you attend a day course then a light lunch is included in the price, and all dietary requirements are catered for.

I had such a lovely, cosy afternoon with Maria learning to crochet. She was very patient, lovely to chat to and put me at ease straight away. She gave me lots of tips and even hand written reminders to take away with me. It was just like sitting with a friend in front of the log burner having a natter. Highly recommended and good for the soul :)

Response from The Lemon Hound:

Thank you so much Belinda! I hope the crochet is going well? :)
Best wishes

I had been wanting to learn to crochet for many years. Marie made this experience very enjoyable for a complete novice! She was friendly and very patient! Her instructions were clear and it was brilliant to see examples of what could be achieved. The setting is lovely and the log burner, cups of tea and biscuits added to the whole experience. I will definitely go back to try out some of Marie’s other courses.
Thank you for a great afternoon,
Jill Coombe

I have had a fun and enjoyable afternoon learning how to crochet with Maria at the Lemon Hound in Folkestone! It was easy to book the workshop online and Maria was very helpful and responded to my queries promptly. It is a cosy location on the Old High Street in Folkestone, easily accessible and there is a car park nearby. Maria is an excellent teacher! She is friendly and patient, and explains each step very clearly. I would really recommend booking a workshop with her and I will definitely be booking another one soon!
