About this Event


Join us for our Beginners Crochet Course with brilliant local artist Bev Rhodes to help you take that leap into learning to crochet in 2024.

A multidisciplinary artist who loves sharing their arts and crafts knowledge and helping others find wellbeing. Bev’s crochet journey began as a child when her grandma taught her, and she now exhibits work that she’s created.

Crochet is such a fun and versatile skill to learn and there are so many things that you can make once you've learnt a few basic stitches. It is also a great hobby to have to help you relax and look after your everyday wellbeing.

In this beginner’s crochet course, you will learn how to master five basic crochet stitches and create an item to be proud of.

Crocheting has many health benefits including relieving stress and building self-esteem.

During the first 2 weeks we will practice the main stitches and changing yarn colour. Once you have mastered this you will work on crocheting granny squares and turning them into something functional for the remainder of the course. This could be a mug cosy, a small bag, some garland, or go big and make a cushion cover!

All materials are included and you will leave with your completed crochet pieces.

The course is suitable for complete beginners or those wanting to refresh their skills.

Hot drinks and biscuits are included.

To ensure this Beginners Crochet Course is accessible to everyone we have made it Pay What You Can for the 5-week Course.
