Excellent course - the teacher was very enthusiastic (and patient!). Good value for money too - I was amazed by the course materials.

An informative class from Becky who explained the stitches very clearly. Lovely yarn but it was a bit thick and I found the crochet hook difficult to insert at times. I am looking forward to continuing with the Granny Square workshop

Tracy Batten Mar 2023

I went to learn to crochet, the lady who taught me was absolutely lovely, she was calm and patient and I learnt a lot. I got a starter kit which was lovely. I was a bit nervous to begin with as it was done in store, but had so much fun I completely forgot about it. I came away feeling confident to carry on. Was well worth the money
