Crocheting with a cup of tea and slice of cake

I run crochet workshops and weekly crochet sessions at various locations around Sussex (in Brighton and the surrounds). I have found that crafting over a cup of tea and cake always makes the experience a whole lot more enjoyable. And the cafe environment provides a wonderful atmosphere for this.

Check my Facebook for workshop times and locations:

At all sessions, I provide the materials for participants to learn and practice (yarn, hooks, worksheets, patterns, needles, snips) as well as a plethora of notes and printed patterns. I also have kits available to purchase along with some lovely yarns.

In these sessions, I will help those who participate (ladies and/or gents) to learn how to crochet starting at the beginning: holding a hook, attaching the yarn, holding the yarn, and creating stitches, following a pattern, and making delightful items. During the week, I email all those who attended with some more helpful tips, video links and the worksheets from the completed sessions.

Contact me to organize a regular, one-off or a workshop session at a cafe near you.
