Introduction to Crochet

The Course

Join a short relaxed session to learn some basic crochet stitches.

The Tutor

Rose Savage trained as a teacher and worked for some time, until her family began to arrive, teaching 7 to 8 year olds. Once the family was at school she worked first for a publishing company, and finally 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 practise of arts and crafts.
