Classes timetable – all in Crouch End London N8

Class timetable

Here are the scheduled crochet classes for APRIL. The floral wreaths are back again – read about them here. Basically, there’s a simplified one that is suitable for complete beginners and another more complex one for those who have learned the basic stitches. Even if you don’t want to make the complete wreath, you’ll have all the skills to make little flowers and leaves

Of course there are the ever-popular granny squares, and for those of you who’ve already learned the basic square 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.

Don’t forget there are other projects I can teach you in an individual lesson – see here for details of projects.

Or if you have a pattern that you’d like to tackle and need help with, just get in touch for a 1-2-1 lesson.

If none of the times suit you, or you fancy a different project (see more projects here) or would prefer to  learn to knit or improve your knitting skills please get in touch. 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.

PLEASE NOTE I AM WILLING TO TRAVEL ELSEWHERE IN LONDON, though price may vary depending on travelling time.

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 these classes are in Crouch End.

I can teach you to knit in three hour-long lessons, arranged to suit you. The three cost £35, payable at the first session (includes set of needles and ball of yarn). Just get in touch to arrange.
