Tunisian Crochet Workshop

The Course

Learn the basics of Tunisian crochet in a practical day with some information about the history of this form of crochet too. For this course you should have a basic knowledge of crochet, such as making a chain and treble.

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.
