About the Course

Learn the basics of Amigurumi crochet in a day - no experience required as we will be following a pattern together to learn the crochet techniques which we require to make a small Amigurumi animal.

So what is Amigurumi? This is the art of creating a 3D shaped item using crochet or knitting. It is perfect for making toys, characters, and even vases or baskets from wool, cotton, or synthetic wools.

And it's very satisfying as well as fun to see your item take shape - literally!

Maximum number on workshop is 8 people. This class is suitable for adults only and accompanied teens.

You will be provided with the tuition plus yarn, hook and pattern as well as any items needed to finish the project eg stuffing. You will be able to take away your chosen pattern, yarn to finish the pattern, and the crochet hook which you have used.

You will have seen how to finish your crocheted item on the day as it will be demonstrated at various stages so you can see what the stages are including starting off, crocheting in the round, stuffing, and finishing.

You may wish to bring a craft apron and/or to wear clothes suitable for craft activities.

Want to review this course?

Had a brilliant day doing this course. Sally tailored her teaching to meet the needs of those completely new to crochet and those with some experience. I went after trying (unsuccessfully) to learn crochet from YouTube so I was a complete beginner and I'm now obsessed! I went straight to the craft shop and got more supplies and my technique has improved dramatically over the last couple of days. Would recommend this to anyone. It was a relaxed atmosphere and everyone else on the course was lovely too.

Our day yesterday was brilliant. The group number was good, the venue lovely and Sally herself was a kind, welcoming and patient tutor. Our day was marked by lots of laughter which for me means participants were relaxed, and consequently in a good place to learn. Acquiring any new skill is initially a challenge but Sally took away the fear and was incredibly patient. I am already looking at booking my next course with her and can’t wait for it. Five star in every way!

Thank you for your review Sarah and for coming along to the Workshop. I'm really pleased you enjoyed it and, having not completed a crocheted item before, your finished Amigurumi whale is wonderful! Look forward to seeing you again.

Excellent course! Had a lot of fun and achieved an unbelievable amount more than expecting. So many questions answered. Sewed exciting creative seeds for future projects. Learned about tools, supplies and possibilities too. A mindful and fulfilling skill. Thank you!
