Get 'hooked'! And take your first steps in crochet. 


This class is aimed at complete beginners or those who have not picked up a crochet hook for many years. The day will begin with simple double crochet stitches while working on a crochet hook case. Later in the day you will learn how to complete a traditional 'granny square' washcloth.


Techniques to be covered:

  • holding the hook and yarn
  • basic stitches
  • changing colour
  • understanding terminology
  • working in the round

All materials and refreshments are included in the cost of the workshop. Please bring a packed lunch.

Learn to Crochet with Dorothy Petrie

Date & Time
  • As a former primary and nursery teacher, Dorothy found that relaxation came through craft. Although not quite sure who actually taught her to knit (probably her mum or even her grannie), Dorothy has no such doubts about her crochet tutor - her bedridden great grannie who set about teaching her the basics. Over a period of time this was extended into following patterns, Tunisian crochet and even some hairpin lace. Retired now from teaching, Dorothy has more time to devote to her knitting and crochet projects and is keen to pass on what knowledge she has gained over more than 40 years as an enthusiastic amateur.
