Great class. I did find crochet a bit difficult However, the lady was very helpful. She made sure she kept checking me and giving me tips on how to improve

I booked my 3 grandchildren onto this course for the end of the half term and they loved it. Even though they are different ages (8, 5 & 3) The simple idea was so engaging that they all couldn’t wait to display their rainbows once they went home.
The woman who ran the class, Karen, was very welcoming and kind.
I would most definitely book another class after the enjoyment they had put of this one.
Good value for money.

Ella Jenkins Feb 2024


Amazing class. Honestly sad for it to end. Jacqui was fab in every way and I’d honestly have paid the money just to have a matter with her once a week

Kanishka Panchal Feb 2024


This class was all I needed. Such a wholesome experience. Jackie was so patient and lovely. Cannot wait to put up my art on wall. The venue was easy to reach. The class was not too large, just the right number of people. Also, the kit to take home is just great.

I like how we got to choose lots of different colour beads on the rainbow, it looks really realistic - aged 5
I like the beads - aged 4
I like making the clay clouds - aged 6
Sharon was friendly and really helpful - Mum!

I really enjoyed this class, I already know how to crochet but have struggled with granny squares so it was nice to learn how to do them. Jo was lovely and very clear with instructions.

Megan Caldwell Feb 2024


Class was a great introduction to granny squares, we got all the material provided and got to take wool home to finish off more which was great!
The teacher was very knowledgeable and had a clear passion for crochet, it was great to get an in person demonstration :)

Linda Larkin Feb 2024


Wow. I have always wanted to do this Granny Square course and I wasn’t disappointed. Jacqui, our tutor, was amazing. She was so helpful, patient and encouraging and she made the course fun. She was always so positive and this enabled me to push myself. I have learnt so much about crocheting and yarns and now feel able to create so many things with confidence.

The venue was great, all the staff were friendly and I was made to feel extremely welcome. The materials were fabulous too and most definitely the course was value for money.

I thoroughly enjoyed the last six weeks and would highly recommend it.

Sjoera Snijder-Sahuleka Feb 2024


I signed up a second time for this course as I so enjoyed it the first time. I did change the design a bit this time, but again enjoyed my Friday mornings with Jacqui and the other ladies in the group. Jacqui’s is so generous sharing her knowledge and holds the space beautifully. I can highly recommend this course at Hobbycraft Wimbledon with Jacqui!

Sjoera Snijder-Sahuleka Feb 2024


My first time booking a private class with Artisan Jacqui at Hobbycraft Wimbledon. I had a wonderful time learning how to best crochet the border of my blanket. Jacqui is, besides very knowledgable, just a wonderful person to be around. This definitely wasn’t my last private session with her! Thank you

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Lovely small group of 4. I think the teacher would have struggled with more. Wood have been nice to chose own thread and better printed Instructions would be good

Rebecca Magniant Feb 2024


Lovely class, great teacher, very helpful and fun at the same time. Will def book again!

Erin McMenamin Feb 2024


Jenny was excellent, covered absolutely everything I could want to know and was so helpful

A great beginners guide to crochet with Jacqui. She was really helpful and encouraging! I went with my mum and we both left able to crochet! Excellent value for money with wool and crochet hook provided.

Clare Lynn Jan 2024


Jacqueline was the right person for the workshop. Very friendly, funny and patient. Made me feel at easy. Learnt how to set up my sewing machine and do some different stitches. Looking at booking another workshop.

Elaine Conkling Jan 2024


Really great class and great instructor - very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking to crochet :)

Cara Hannigan Jan 2024


Jacqui was our teacher and I couldn’t have asked for a more lovely person to help me along my first crochet class. I was joined by my nan and friend who agreed that the experience was made even more enjoyable because of her. By the end of the class I was able to actually crochet two ways and am eager to sign up to more classes

Kim Hall Jan 2024


Annie was great. Very knowledgeable about the cricut machine. Answered all of my questions well.

Gabriella Harris-Sullivan Jan 2024

Jacqui was a fantastic teacher as she was able to cater for absolute beginners and some who a little more about crochet. Class size was good - highly recommended this workshop

Carolyn Woodward-Smith Jan 2024


I had a one to one class with Jacqui. She was a great teacher, really patient and explained everything very clearly.

Staff are always so lovely in this store, the workshop was so much fun, led by instructors who gave clear instructions which my 7 year old could easily follow.

We have stopped booking classes at Croydon now, due to rude and unkind staff members. Wimbledon is a little more of a drive for us but well worth it to avoid the Croydon store staff!

Lucy Powell Jan 2024


My son thoroughly enjoyed the session today. Sharon was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you!

Sam Pedder Jan 2024


Jo is brilliant - what a great idea to be able to come in 1-2-1 to target specific things!

Jacqui once again helped us get through problems on a pattern and talked through solutions. What is great is that Jacqui is prepared for each lesson knowing what we need help with so we always get the most out of every minute with her

Thank you for a brilliant beginners sewing class. Jenny is a kind and patient teacher who was inspiring and really supportive. We will be back for more advanced advice soon!

Rebecca Bottriell-Adams Dec 2023


Absolutely excellent Jacqui was so enthusiastic and brilliant with the children my daughter absolutely loved it

Anonymised ClassBento student Dec 2023


My daughter really enjoyed this class and wants to do another one. I think it would be quite difficult to complete the class within 30 minutes though especially with young children. We were there for nearly an hour. I thought the teacher was lovely and incredibly enthusiastic but I didn't think it was professional of a man (assume manager) to walk past making a comment that the class had overrun.

Lavani Devarajan Dec 2023


Jacqui was really friendly and a great teacher, who explained every step clearly and helped on 1:1 basis when I was doing it wrong.
Venue was good but a bit cold. They supplied all the equipment to use and keep and is good quality.
I would definitely do more classes in the future

Teacher was good, craft too. Kids enjoyed time there and do nice arts. Highly recommend

Safaa Benson-Effiom Dec 2023


What a great lesson! Jacqui was clear, helpful and super encouraging! And the time flew by - I could have sat there for hours, easy

Sonya Monteiro Dec 2023


Jacqui was a great tutor. She calmly took us through the steps, the explanations were clear, we could work at our own pace within the class structure. The group size was perfect for a beginners class too.
We were shown the basics of starting, chain stitch, changing colour, double crochet and finishing/tying off.
1.5 hrs flew by, but we covered it all.
Goody bag with supplies, a project pattern and instructions of what we learnt.
Great fun!
I would highly recommend this workshop.

Isabelle Southwood Dec 2023


The teacher was fun and kind. She had prepared samples for us to use to help us get started. The wool we were given to work with was very soft.

I throughly enjoyed the class and Anna was very patient and she explained things clearly.

Yasmin Dec 2023


We had the most friendliest teacher, honestly so lovely, made great conversation with my son and you could tell she genuinely wanted him to enjoy it.
For only £8 I was expecting an in and out job, but was pleasantly surprised and will definitely book more classes.

Lara Dec 2023


My daughters weren't able to attend ad they were ill so the staff made them up a lovely bag with of the instructions to do at home which I thought was so nice

Sylvia Jeffers Dec 2023


Good value for money. Teacher supportive and encouraging. Nice to do in small group and can take away material

Lindsay Murray Dec 2023


The class was small and the teacher Jo was really patient! Wool and a hook were provided.

Jo Rodgers Dec 2023

Another really great clas taught by Jo. There were 4 of us in total of mssively varying age ranges and skills! Venue was comfortable - warm without being too hot and we were comfortably seated around a table at the back of the store.

As usual got a great pack of 2 balls of wool, a crochet hook and printed guide to what we were going to do all in a HobbyCraft tote bag. We learned how to cast on and create the first 4-5 rows of a granny square and how to change wool on each row (or stay with the same colour).

Considering materials provided and what we lreared I thought it was very good value for
money - best thing was Jo's patience in being able to deal with us all being at different stages!

Thinking about signing up for the 6 week granny square course next but I see to have missed the one starting in January!

Jed Willcox Dec 2023


Really helpful, very fun and came away being able to crochet a couple of different stitches which was great. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to get into crocheting l

Jo was really great. Very good teaching techniques and very patient even though I was late

Cathryn Rees Dec 2023


Jacqui was a wonderful teacher, showing me what to do with patience and kindness. The samples she gave us to start with were clearly crafted with love and I felt so confident leaving the class that I continued to crochet on the bus home, which having never crocheted before is a testament to her skill as a teacher.

Lauren Murphy Nov 2023


This course is absolutely excellent. The way the pattern is structured really helps you learn lots of skills in a phased way and the way the lovely Jacqui teaches the course helps you learn much better how to parse crochet patterns, giving you the skills to make much more than just the blanket. This is so much more than just a ‘let’s make a blanket’ course, it is a really great way to turn beginner crocheters into confident crochet addicts!

Gillian Thomas Nov 2023


Teacher was great very helpful and informative, really knew her stuff.
I learned a few very helpful tricks and feel a lot more confident in using my machine.

I've just come back from a wreath making workshop at Wimbledon and I would definitely recommend it.
Karen was my Teacher, she was brilliant, she made the experience worthwhile, she was warm & friendly & put me at ease, full of knowledge about the store, assisted me with some tricky bits when making the wreath.
I came away with a lovely wreath, Thank you, Karen

The venue was ok but it would have been nice to have the option of a glass of water or a cup of tea and available toilets.

The teacher was good, she was patient and went over the same points many times.

We were given plenty of materials to continue our work at home.

Janette Pyke Nov 2023


What a super class! Jo has endless patience and even changed the class to allow us to make the most of our time. We didn’t know how to do a basic crochet stitch but still got onto granny squares thanks so J perseverance. We had a wonderful time and will most definitely be back! Thank you so much Jo!

Margaret Sibley Nov 2023


Sharon was very helpful and happy to help out with any issues. Nice size class (4). Very impressed with the materials given and the finished star wreath.
Would definitely book another class.
Thanks.

Lynda Pawley Nov 2023


Star Wreath. Sharon our teacher was excellent she explained and demonstrated very clearly and was most helpful with ideas. The wreath is very tasteful but could have done with red berries not black and I am not sure about the hessian ribbon. I am replacing it with red! A very enjoyable class and look forward to booking further classes.

I cannot recommend Chloe highly enough. She’s an excellent and highly skilled knitting teacher.
Chloe gave me very clear instructions about knitting the different stitches and how to follow a pattern.
She demonstrated and explained how to cast on and off, how to pick up dropped stitches and how to go back and correct stitches on lower rows.
Chloe’s a very encouraging and re-assuring teacher, I have really enjoyed learning to knit with her and I highly recommend her classes.

Angela Parke Nov 2023


Friendly helpful teacher. Good selection of ink colours. Smaller baubles came out nicely marbled, but pattern on larger baubles was quite faint and only reached bottom third.

Deborah Nov 2023


Jenny was welcoming, encouraging and she delivered a straightforward and excellent class for me. I came to this 1 to 1 a little trepidatous as I was frightened of my rarely used overlocker. I wanted to use it but didn't have the confidence to as it had stopped working, got stuck (my error & inexperience) and I had unthreaded it (wrong). Jenny, sorted that out with me, highlighted the main things to look out for during the session, highlighted those elements in the instruction manual too (with my permission) Really helpful and she was a delight to learn from - she also said take it home and use it and I am going to - my trepidation has diminished. Thank you

Carine Nov 2023


Teacher was Amazing with great tips. Really patient and friendly. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a gorgeous wreath on their front door!

Jacquetta Nov 2023


I enjoyed this class. Teacher Jackie was warm, friendly and patient. Her approach was designed to build confidence as we progressed. The equipment was presented in a tote bag and it felt like unwrapping a present. I have already signed up for another course

Susan Bianchi Nov 2023


Originally there wasn’t enough resources to complete the wreath, only two glue guns and two pairs of scissors for three people having to share resource meant an hour was not long enough.

Tammy White Nov 2023


Fabulous fabulous class. Jacqui was so patient with us all, we all were at different stages of our crocheting journey.

So much fun I enrolled for another course

Olawumi Ademokun Nov 2023


Jacqui was really friendly. A very experienced crocheter that went at a pace we could follow with regular moments of checking in and advising on how to improve

I only took the class 3 days ago and have already learned 2 new stitches on my own thanks to the confidence Jacqui gave me on the essentials.

If you’ve been wanting to start crochet but don’t feel you can learn solo, please do consider taking this class! I will definitely be back to learn granny squares

Fiona Anthonypillai Nov 2023


Chloe was there to teach us. She was clear in her instructions, patient, offered us advise and created a very relaxed environment for us. The area was quiet and there was sufficient space to undertake the craft session, although the seats were a little low. All materials were provided and we took home the excess we did not use. It was a fun and enjoyable session with a good friend and we have something that we are proud of now! The session was priced appropriately.

The teacher gave very clear instructions and was well prepared to get everyone started quickly so we really made the most of our lesson.
I am thinking of enrolling for another class already :-)

Joy Oct 2023


I loved this course and am sad it is over! Jacqui is an exceptionally gifted, patient, and kind teacher, and the participants in the class were all lovely. I learned a lot and am well on my way to having a complete, totally unique blanket.

The structure of the course was excellent: learning a new square with new stitches, techniques, and elements of pattern reading each week- a very thoughtful progression and way of building and reinforcing new skills.

It was great to be able to choose our own yarn colours, and the inclusion of the materials makes this course great value for money.

I would happily participate in similarly structured and priced courses- perhaps a hexi-cardigan class or something else that involves more complex stitches and pattern reading. I've probably had enough of Granny Squares for the moment, but there is still SO much to learn and a "beginner plus" class would be wonderful.

Lesley Beavitt Oct 2023


Teacher was lovely. Others on the class were good it was a very enjoyable morning and I felt that I had learnt the basics of crochet I hope to do another class soon.

Margaret Cole Oct 2023

Brilliant Intro to Crochet class taught by Jo at Wimbledon Hobbycraft who managed to teach a fab course despite us all arriving at different times due to traffic issues.

We learned casting on, simple chains, double and treble crochet and half treble. We were provided with a crochet hook, two nicely wrapped balls of wool (I got mustard and grey which are favourite colours) and a cotton bag.

I thought it was great value for money and feel confident enough that I bought more balls of wool the way out so I can try and crochet a small blanket before moving onto the granny squares course!

This workshop was brilliant thanks to the wonderful Jenny. I have recently purchased a sewing machine and I wanted to become more confident with my sewing skills and understand all the various functions of my sewing machine. Jenny went through all the basics with me, replied to all my questions and gave me some tips for my little project. I have achieved much more than expected and I really enjoyed my self :) thanks Jenny

Great value for money, I took 3 children and they absolutely loved it. Jenny who was the staff member helping was amazing. Help the children when needed and was just a joy to be around. This was our first time doing a craft but will definitely be back again.
Highly recommend.

We arrived a little late, due to roadworks causing havoc with the traffic, thus, we came in rather flustered, however, Sharon was so lovely, showing us what to and providing step by step instructions. My son had so much fun and is keen to attend additional workshops, which I shall be booking very soon!

Very good and very fun. It's just the right amount of time for the kids to get into it. The teacher was great. She gave directions to the kids while leaving enough leeway so that they're able to come up with their own idea.

Very good manner and knowledgable.

A one to one class was just what I needed. Having previously attended a one off beginner's class - where I actually learnt to crochet :-) there were a few things I either forgot or never quite grasped. Jackie went through everything with me and answered all my questions. Jackie is an amazing teacher and this a great session if you are struggling as a beginner. However, it would also be good for crocheters of any level.

Elizabeth Adan-Peart Oct 2023


The teacher was brilliant. She spent time with each of us. This meant we could ask questions specific to us without delaying g the group. The tutor was a fountain of knowledge. Will attend future workshops.

Jacqui was amazing!

A great teacher, funny, friendly and patient.

We will definitely be booking our next course with her and look forward to practicing what we learnt today.

We were even given a £5 off code to spend in store, we both downloaded the app after Jacqui recommended it and we now know we can book our next class with 20% off!

Joanne Walfall Sep 2023


Jenny's knowledge of dressmaking is excellent, she explains how the sewing machine works, for example how to sew in a straight line and sew around in a circle I could go on, Jenny is a wonderful teacher, and I cannot wait to put what I have learned into practice.

Jan Sep 2023


Enjoyed the course very much. Jacqui was an excellent teacher who made sure everyone was in track and intervening with encouragement, praise and humour. Think 90 mins just about enough and would like a follow up 90 mins course for next steps. Good value for money.

Hannah Coleman Sep 2023


Fantastic class for beginners. Teacher Jacqui had the patience of a saint and explained everything clearly whilst keeping it fun. Nice class size so you could ask questions and fantastic little take away bag as well. Learnt a lot and will definitely look to do more workshops like this.

Really great class. Perfect for absolute beginners and people like me who’ve had a go and messed up and then given up!

Jacque was a great teacher, really good rapport with everyone and reassuring when we all messed up at some point. She also had us ‘start from the middle’ so had some swatches ready for us to crochet into and it showed she had clearly given a lot of thought time and effort into setting us up for success.

The materials were lovely too, autumnal and great quality.

Will definitely book for the more advanced ones when I’ve practiced some more

Beatriz Medina Sep 2023


Jacqui was fantastic with my kids helping them focus and have fun. Will be back for more lessons.

Great class! Materials provided are high quality and Jacqui‘s a wonderful, funny and patient teacher. High recommend.

Olivia Evans Sep 2023


My 13 year old daughter and I loved this class with Jacqui! We'd previously tried to learn the very basics via YouTube and, sitting with Jacqui, were able to make sense of it all and see where we were going wrong. Very useful and great fun! We came away having learned to crochet a foundation chain, double stitch, treble stitch and half treble stitch, as well as how to tie off/start when switching yarns. We've both come home and crocheted a full scarf in the couple of days since the class - we're hooked!
Jacqui was very clear to follow, very patient and friendly - we'd both love to do another class with her to learn more crochet techniques. We'll be back!

Maggie Sep 2023


The teacher was amazing and so patient with me. We were chatting throughout the workshop! I went in with no idea on how to make a granny square and had made another one by the end of the day, after my workshop (I'm a visual learner). The kit provided was also lovely. Definitely recommend to those with basic knowledge of crocheting.

A very useful introduction to crochet. There is no substitute for hands-on learning with live, in-person support. Wonderful to leave with the ability and materials to complete a project- or several.

I'd familiarised myself with some basics prior to the class by watching YouTube videos and making a few attempts at home. This was really helpful, but not essential as everything is covered in the class.

I appreciated the opportunity to ask about things I found confusing or difficult. It was a huge help to be able to physically pass my work to the teacher for help in figuring out where things went awry and to get tips for fixing my specific mistakes.

Jacqui was an amazing, helpful and thoughtful teacher. She was incredibly encouraging and made me feel very confident even though it was my first time at crochet. My favourite part was that it was clear a lot of thought had been put into the "how" of teaching, with foundation rows prepared for us to start on and get a rhythm before doing the tougher work of making our own foundation rows. I'm looking forward to trying another crochet course with Jacqui in the future!

When you arrive, either go to the tills to let them know you've arrived or hang around at the tables where the sewing machines are- there may be others in the class or you may be the only one, the class will still go ahead.

I loved my class with Jackie! She was so calm, patient - and lots of fun.

We were in a private room, so it was really easy to focus. We got two lovely balls of wool, a crochet needle and instructions to refer to once we get home. Jackie also referred us to good YouTubers to watch after the class and invited us back if we had any issues with our crochet projects.

Thank you!

Simple enough for kids yet effective and worth the money. Great fine motor skills threading beads and nice to be involved in an activity with others rather than attempting it at home. I'd recommend trying out a class.

It wasn't strictly rainbow making as you were able to choose any colours you liked from the selection of beads available. My 6yo enjoyed taking ownership of his colours of beads.

Teacher Sharon gave a good balance of guiding but also letting children take ownership of their own creation.

Jaqui was very friendly, engaging and helpful. The group was small and was situated at the back of the shop so felt secluded which was nice.

One criticism though was that the chairs were very low and meant you had to slouch/lean to reach the table

And you can really tell she's passionate about it.

Very knowledgeable, friendly and encouraging workshop teacher. I got to make 2 different colour combination pours using paints and canvases from our kits. As the canvases take 24-36 hours to dry and I arrived by public transport I opted to collect the from store a couple of days later. However if you travelled by car it would be possible to transport them in a shallow box. I was pleasantly surprised that the kit which I was given to keep was worth as much as the cost of the class. The teacher also took us round store to show us where refill items were.

I recommend this workshop to anyone who would like to try on using cricut machine before committing on purchasing it. Annie, the workshop tutor, was very patient in showing me how to engrave a plastic sheet. The workshop space was well equipped and all the materials were provided. However, the internet connection was not the fastest and slow in uploading my own images into the cricut program. But overall, I enjoyed the workshop and would consider coming back when I have a different project in mind.
