Amazing beginners class. Learnt so much and confident to keep practicing and even try a simple pattern. Great beginners pack with wool, hook, instructions to refer back to and a nifty tote bag.
Bryony was so clear and helpful with her tutorial, and full of tips to go it alone. The time flew by!
Great value and very enjoyable.

Vivienne Sep 2023

Bryony was a great teacher, very friendly and explained things really well. Thorough enjoyed the class and time flew by.

Karen Carney Sep 2023

A great beginner’s course: there were just two of us on the course which meant the tutor was able to give one to one tuition and guidance. We received a cotton bag, crochet hook and 2 x 100g balls of yarn, together with written instructions for chain, double crochet, treble and half treble.

The instructor was very helpful, friendly and approachable. The time was ideal (5 - 6.30pm) and although the workshop was within the store I didn’t feel awkward with customers wandering past!

I continued practicing when I got home

We were a group of 3 and were the only students so we had lots of attention.Our tutor, Briony was very patient and had a calm persona so the session was very relaxed. She explained all the basic stitches very well and helped us all with understanding patterns and counting rows etc. and individually on any thing we were unsure of. 1.1/2 hours flew by but we covered the basics so lots of knowledge to now put into practice at home and we are armed with printouts and all the equipment used on the session. Very enjoyable would definitely recommend, good value and a big thank you to Briony (Droitwich Store) ☺️

We were taught by Bryony in the Droitwich store, she was patient and knowledgeable. I took my teenage daughter and we both joined the class, my daughter can be very shy but she quickly relaxed into the class. We went from barely being able to hold the yarn to being able to do all of the stitches comfortably, my daughter is now half way through making a new scarf! The materials provided were great too!

Sharon Sheppard Aug 2022

Bryony was fantastic. Very friendly and easy to talk to.
She took her time to teach me how to do the stitches.
All I could do at the beginning of the course was a chain, now I can do double, treble and half treble.
Definitely recommend Bryony.
Thank you so much.
