Learn to crochet with me, hosted on an online 1-to-1 basis.

I love how crochet is so flexible and free, just a hook and a ball of yarn and you can create anything from an amigurumi toy to a blanket or a crocheted cushion cover.

I've been knitting and crocheting for over 35 years and enjoy many other crafts too. I am passionate about sharing my skills and helping others to learn how much fun crochet can be.

We will learn how to create the chain stitch, double and treble crochet - all of which will be sent out to you in sample form ahead of the live online tuition.

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?

Yarn, hook and samples mailed out to you in the post, course conducted via Zoom or Facetime.

What you will need

Scissors and some peace and quiet!

Five Stars *****
Had a brilliant time with Lucy. I received the samples before the course and was really pleased with the quality. Lucy went through everything with me and even though it was on Zoom we’re able to see each other’s work. I was able to crochet double and treble samples and was delighted with the results. Highly recommend.

Response from The Creators Hideaway:

Hi Fiona,
Thanks for the lovely review. I’m glad you enjoyed our time together learning how to crochet. I’m pleased the samples were useful and that you were able to learn the basics with me. I hope you enjoy your new-found skills 🙂

Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Lucy was really friendly and easy going. Very clear instructions meant that I was able to crochet by the end of three absorbing hours. Loved it! Many thanks

Response from The Creators Hideaway:

Aww thanks Jane, once again I enjoyed teaching yet another willing participant and our 3 hours flew by. I’m glad you have started a craft which is indeed absorbing and so easy to fall in love with. Happy crocheting 🙂

I really enjoyed spending three hours learning the basics of crocheting with Lucy. I had never picked up a crochet hook before so really was a complete beginner. I am now able to complete the three basic crochet stitches and feel in a good position to move forward from now onwards. Three hours felt like the right length of time and passed really quickly. Thank you, Lucy!

Response from The Creators Hideaway:

Thank you for the lovely review, it was great to meet you and pass on skills and knowledge. I hope you come to love crochet as much as I do!

Sofi Freijeiro-Armitage - - #32247

Lucy is so patient and explains things in an easy to understand way. She was happy to repeat processes until i got the hang of the stitch. I'd highly recommend trying this course if you have an interest in crocheting, she will tailor the course to your stage and speed! Thank you Lucy, a highly enjoyable 3 hours spent.

Response from The Creators Hideaway:

Aw, thanks Sofi! It was so nice to meet you and discover our mutual connection to Dorset! I’m pleased that you were able to master crocheting after previous failed attempts and thank you for being an easy-to-teach student! I hope that you can use the basics we learnt to develop your skills and perfect the stitches. Experiment and enjoy ..... get the girls onto it too 😉

Lucy was a wonderful tutor and was very patient with me. I thoroughly enjoyed the session with her, and look forward to learning more. Thank you, Lucy!

Response from The Creators Hideaway:

Thank you for your lovely review Susie. It was great to meet you and your Mum, and I enjoyed helping you to build your confidence with starting a piece of crochet from scratch and working in the round. I hope we will see each other again if you need any more help. Enjoy making your coasters and keep the photos coming 🙂🙂🙂

Lucy was very friendly and helped to explain things the books couldn’t. She inspired me to do more crotchet. I would highly recommend her to others 😊

Thank you so much for the lovely review, it was really nice to meet a younger crochet enthusiast and on her 16th Birthday too! I felt honoured to share my skills and I’m glad that it was useful to inspire her to crochet more. Lucy ☺️

Lucy has a lot of patience and was an excellent tutor. I’ve never been able to crochet and had tried countless books and YouTube etc without any success. Thanks to Lucy’s tuition I can now crochet. Would highly recommend this course. Thank you

Response from The Creators Hideaway:

Aww thank you Maggie - it was a pleasure to teach you and despite us being over 300 miles apart, we managed to achieve all our class goals. I’m glad you were able to *finally master crocheting :)

A lovely way to spend 3 hours on a Sunday afternoon. Throughly enjoyed the crochet course and learnt so much in a relaxed, friendly and fun environment. I would highly recommend this course, Lucy is an excellent tutor and provides a choice of delicious homemade delights to eat on the coffee/tea break. I’m looking forward to the next course .
