If you’re looking for a new hobby and are in a creative mood, crochet is just the thing for you. Learn how to wield a hook and create something special in this Classie course for absolute beginners.
This course is designed for those who have had little to no experience with a crochet hook. You will learn basic stitches, such as double and treble crochets, chain stitches, slip stitches, and their abbreviations; how to change colours; and even try your hand at a granny square towards the end of the class.
Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. Participants will be provided with all the equipment on the day, including an aluminium hook, sample patterns, and a ball of yarn.
Come along to a Classie course and learn another lifelong skill.
Please note: This class requires a minimum of five people to proceed. Bookings are essential.
Any child under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Refund Policy: Full refunds given with 5 days notice. Dates can be changed with 3 days notice.

It was great - Teacher was really helpful and a lovely way to spend the morning! 5/5 by Michaela Perske 21-11-2017
Venue very convenient. Teacher was very patient and explained everything in understandable terms as well as one on one help.
Just got into the swing of it when the three hours was up, maybe one day workshops could be a good idea. I certainly would be interested in that. 5/5 by Kathleen Hepworth 20-11-2017

I had an enjoyable time but found it very difficult to hear Sophie. There seemed to be too many people at a beginners level to allow for Sophie to get around to everyone. Although the cafe is pleasant, a quieter background and one round table would mean everyone received more attention from the teacher. It might also be good to have the completed project as a useful item e g a coaster 4/5 by Jennifer Carr 24-10-2017

I really enjoyed the class & highly recommend Sophie, she is a very good teacher & took things slow enough for me to follow.

Sophie was great and enthusiastic! 4/5 by Marie Nguyen 22-8-2017
I had never crocheted before, but Sophie was an excellent and patient teacher and I left with a very good basic understanding of crochet, which I could practice at home. Gave me a feeling of accomplishment from learning a new skill. 5/5 by Sarah Coyle 22-8-2017
A lovely teacher who tried to share her attention as fairly as possible. There were 8 in the class which was a good size. Anymore it would have been too many. 4/5 by Denese Harrington 21-8-2017
Very helpful to learn the basic fundamentals. The teacher even spent extra time at the end to make sure we got it. 5/5 by Sen Lin 20-8-2017
the instructor was very good and explained the skills clearly and took the time to help everyone. I am left handed and was so pleased that the instructor was able to show me by crocheting left handed- really very helpful, thank you . I think there was just too many people in the class as there was 11 people so it took the instructor time to get around to help each person that needed it. the instructor was very encouraging and positive. 5/5 by Carol Barton 24-7-2017

Well organised with a friendly and informative teacher. Venue cosy and coffee welcome. Take home goodie bag cute. 4/5 by Kate Santleben 23-7-2017
we went over everything at a good pace and to go home and practice means to do everything slowly and to practice makes perfect - because we had a few in the class it meant not going over everything on the sheet for example changing wool and finishing off - but i read my sheet at home and think i am doing it correctly. 4/5 by Susan Sawyer 26-6-2017
Very patient and encouraging host. Enjoyable company. Interesting And comfortable venue. Method of teaching very effective. Equal time given to all attendees. Sophie was very aware of each person's needs
A very encouraging, interesting and enjoyable event. Left with a positive attitude to crocheting 5/5 by Susan Russell 30-5-2017
