Learn crochet for beginners with our handcraft courses in Sydney.

Learn crochet, one of the oldest crafts in the world that is labelled today as the new ‘Mental Yoga’. This beginners level course will show you the many health and wellbeing benefits to repetitive crochet proved by research.

Crochet for Beginners is a course that makes learning the crafting fun, while teaching you everything, from how to hold the hook and yarn, starting a chain, to learning how to make the basic stitches, counting stitches and rows and reading patterns.

We have designed this course as a complete beginners level of crochet. Participants don’t need to have any experience. They will be exposed to various projects and will leave with ideas to makes either a bag, gloves or a scarf. They will also have multiple ideas for projects stemming from concepts learnt in class. And finally, you can challenge yourself to use all ten fingers at once and relax into a mindful, rhythmic activity at the same time.

Course testimonials:

  • said: The tutor, Payal, was very passionate, knowledgeable and patient. She made sure everyone in the course got the most out of it. 4 weeks just wasn't enough time though.

  • said: Small group, which is best for this type of course due to the need for a lot of individual attention. Great tutor, very experienced in this subject, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course. As a full time employee working in the city I am pleased that you have these courses in the evening, and in the CBD. Only negative comment is the problems with the lifts.
