Crochet Masterclass (mornings) - 9 week series starting 10th September


If you have started on your crochet journey, and patterns bemuse you, or if you are happy with the basics, but want to know more - this is the course for you! Diana will be guiding you through the techniques and tips that she has picked up in a decade of crocheting that will make your crochet projects easier, quicker, and more enjoyable.  Throughout the masterclass, you will also learn how to read a crochet pattern, starting with common words, through colour coding and finally as commercial patterns are written.

This is the perfect follow-on from our popular Crochet For All Course.

In the workshop, we will be following patterns for 10 different stitches and techniques to create a sampler (not the full blanket). The patterns provided can make a great sampler blanket, and can be used in combination or on their own.  

Techniques/patterns include:

  • foundation dc
  • spike stitch
  • bobbles
  • joining techniques
  • tunisian entrelac 
  • and more

Level: Beginner to intermediate. You will need to have crocheted before, but only need the basic skills, making a chain, dc, tr - the pattern uses basic stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple colour changes, and finishing.

The workshop runs from 10:30am - 12:30pm starting on Saturday 10th September for 9 weeks. Full dates:  10th, 17th & 24th September, 1st, 15th, 22nd & 29th October (skipping 8th October), 5th and 12th November.

We will provide a bound book of instructions, which includes Diana's famous and exhaustive photo tutorials, and a yarn pack.  You will need to bring along a 4.5mm crochet hook.

Tutor: Diana Bensted of The Crochet Chain
