Becs was a great teacher, she explained and demonstrated everything very simply, plus detailed handouts were provided (along with supplies in a lively bag) to refer to later.

Anne Moane Nov 2023

Really enjoyed the class. The teacher was excellent and very patient with us all. She showed us step by step how to use the hook and work the wool and I came away feeling like I had actually achieved the technique. The beginners pack was lovely with very nice wool and I thought the whole class was value for money.

Maureen Stainthorpe Nov 2023

Becks the instructor was lovely - she explains things clearly - gives out plenty of written instructions and spent time with each of us individually as well to ensure we knew what we needed to do. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and came away feeling I had learned and achieved something nee

Our teacher Becs was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. This meant she could help us with all of our queries and problems. The materials we were given were great and being able to go home with them meant I can carry on learning! I would recommend booking a class

Teacher was very good. There was a class of 5 people but Becs gave one-to-one tuition if it was needed. Thoroughly enjoyed the class and the time went very quickly. We learned single crochet, double crochet and triple crochet. All materials were supplied. Certainly recommend the class. Just a suggestion, but It would be nice if class was extended by another half hour or so to teach people how to read a crochet pattern.

I really enjoyed this workshop! Becs was a lovely teacher. Very friendly and helpful offering lots of tips to get me started. I have tried to learn crocheting in the past from videos or a book but I found attending an in person class very useful as I could ask questions and get started on some basics. I now feel much more confident to and excited about getting started on a crocheting project. Thanks Becs!

This was BRILLIANT I had tried to crochet following videos and a book but thought a class would help. Rebecca was the tutor and was really lovely. She broke everything down into easy steps, explained and demonstrated well so that I left feeling confident. Really great value for money.

The kit had everything you needed to make a start and Becs was really good at demonstrating and helping everyone individually. A friendly and supportive group, a really great experience.

Tina Devine Jan 2023

As a complete beginner the class was perfect. Becs went at a pace that we could all follow and spent time with each of us during the sessions. She helped to make sense of all the crochet terms and shared her own experience of crocheting with us. I really learnt a lot and cannot fault any part of the class. The materials and guides were excellent and so easy to use and I can’t wait to start putting into practice what I’ve learnt today.

Julie Wilson Nov 2022

Resources were good and the small group meant you got individual attention the teacher was friendly and helpful.
