Classes timetable – all in Crouch End London N8

Class timetable

Here are the scheduled classes for FEBRUARY. There are four beginners crochet projects this month – come and learn how to make a basic granny square, or a basket, or a set of coasters or some hearts and flower motifs in time for Valentine’s Day. No previous experience necessary for these. And for those of you who’ve already learned the basic granny squares there are two hour-long classes that may be of interest – one to teach you several variations on the basic square, and another which will teach plain and fancy ways of joining your squares together.

For crochet classes, hooks will be available to use at the class, yarn is supplied for the granny squares and coaster classes, and a selection of yarn will be available to purchase for the basket class.

And this month, why not learn how to knit? The Now We’re Knitting courses are split into three hour-long sessions  You just pay on the first day, then choose when to do the second and third class (you do not have to do all three on the same day of the week). The price includes a pair of needles and a ball of yarn – just get in touch to book.

If none of the times suit you, or you fancy a different project, like a crochet table mat or a little coin purse, or would prefer to  learn knitting for a specific project, please get in touch, as I can also organise 1-2-1 sessions or even a small group session for you and your friends (groups of up to 4 max) at a more suitable time for you. See here for prices and details.

If you would like to attend one of the classes below, please book by emailing me on info @ pickingupstitches (dot) com or fill in the form here. Advance booking is essential. All classes in Crouch End.
