Gaëlle is a fantastic crochet tutor! I’d wanted to learn for years and had tried books and video tutorials to no avail. After the beginner course of 3 sessions I was able to read a simple pattern and started a granny square blanket. Gaëlle is a patient and encouraging tutor and she provided clear and relevant handouts to support the lessons. I would not hesitate to recommend the course.
Hard work but well worth the effort!! I'm so pleased with the end result, and to have made something three dimensional! As ever Gaelle has the patience of a saint; as I was the last person on the course to complete the basket she helped me to stay focused and not give up! Can't wait for the next course....
An excellent course with a lovely, patient tutor - just what every beginner needs! The handouts were instructive and clear, giving the essentials of what we needed to know for the course; the class was an ideal size with everyone receiving the guidance they needed from Gaelle. I now have the confidence to tackle crochet patterns on my own and look forward to attending more of Gaelle's crochet courses in future.
I have thoroughly enjoyed learning to crochet with Gaelle. The course has provided all the essentials needed to give me the confidence to pick up a pattern and have a go!! The tips Gaelle has shared and the hand outs are really helpful. Thank you Gaelle.
Excellent course. Excellent and VERY patient teacher! Very useful handouts given in each session. I now know how to do different types of stitches, decreasing and increasing. And most important how to read a pattern! Money well spent....:-)
Excellent course run by Gaelle . Did beginners and followed it with the intermediate course really enjoyed both and found the handouts very helpful and informative. Really recommend the courses
Really enjoyed the course! Having taught myself to crochet, many years earlier, I was very rusty . Gaelle made it fun and made it seem very easy. She was an excellent teacher and was very patient. I finished my shawl in record time. The handouts she gave are extremely helpful. I would recommend anyone to attend one of her courses.
Learn how to read crochet charts
I did a course with Gaelle on reading crochet charts. It was a very informative and useful day. I have since made things using the charts and it's so much easier than ploughing through text. She is a clear teacher as well as a friendly person. We had a lovely session
Gaelle is a superb teacher she explains everything clearly and logically and is always helpful. The class was fun and we all had a lovely time. I was so enthused that I carried on making more and more snowflakes when I went home so then I had enough for a window display. I also tried one with a very fine wool that looked good on the christmas tree. I have booked on another class with Gaelle, and I'm really looking forward to it
Lovely 3 hour workshop which was so helpful! There were 6 of us with Gaelle which was perfect. It made for a lovely atmosphere and it meant that we had lots of opportunities to get individual help and advice from her. We made 3 of the snowflakes and each one showed a different skill. I'm not the best at crochet but along with the snowflakes, Gaelle offered some hints and tips to help me in my general crocheting and this was invaluable help! She was really friendly and approachable and I'd definitely attend another workshop with her. My crochet projects have come on in leaps and bounds since the snowflake workshop.
Gaelle advertised a one day "refresher" course which was just what I needed having taught myself to crochet many years ago and not quite sure what I was doing! It turned out that because someone had cancelled at the last minute, I was the only pupil. Gaelle kindly still ran the session which was brilliant. She is such a good teacher; very patient and answered all my questions. She gave handouts too which are very useful. I would thoroughly recommend her.
Gaelle is such a good tutor,everything is clearly explained(brilliant handouts) and if you do make a mistake she shows you where it went wrong and shows you so clearly how to correct it. Nothing is too daunting every new step appears so easy and before you know it you can do a variety of stitches, and can make squares, baskets and hats and you have the know how to branch out to other projects too.I have been totally inspired,tonight is the last lesson of the beginners course and I wish it wasn't the last, I have had such fun. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone.Just great!
Gaelle has a lovely reassuring teaching style that is motivating whilst giving feedback in order that you can progress through her lessons. Plenty of advice and one to one help. I am now using my new found skills to make squares that will eventually 'grow up' into a blanket. Easy to follow hand-outs for reference.
