Introduction to Crochet

The Course

Enjoy a day in an easy, relaxed atmosphere mastering the three basic crochet stitches which are used as the basis for most patterns. You can then use these stitches to create items of your choice from a variety of simple, fun patterns. No crochet experience needed.

The Tutor

Rose Savage trained as a teacher and taught 7 to 8 year olds until her family began to arrive. Once the family was at school she worked for a publishing company and then spent 13 years at West Sussex County Council before she retired in 2007. She started learning to knit when she was about seven years old. By the time she was in her teens she had learnt to crochet and tat and was also making her own clothes. She was lucky that her parents were involved with a very active Community Centre where classes were held and was always encouraged in the practice of arts and crafts.
