Explore the unique craft of Tunisian crochet in this exciting course, where you will learn the basic techniques to get you started in a fun and friendly environment.

What the course is about

Tunisian crochet is an exciting and unique craft, sometimes described as a cross between knitting and crochet. Tunisian crochet is fast to work up and creates a lovely cosy fabric with some stretch. 

In this course, you will learn a variety of Tunisian crochet techniques. To start with you will make sampler stitch squares that can be combined to make a cosy Tunisian baby blanket or you can replicate these squares at home to create a cosy throw. 

As you progress your tutor may bring extra projects for you to enjoy. 

All our courses are made up of elements of speaking & listening, reading and writing, and you will work using these elements throughout the course.

Learning takes place in a friendly classroom setting, which is a great place for social interaction and helping you meet new people.

Practice at home and completion of homework is advisable to enhance your learning experience.

This course is subsidised by Government funding so you should aim to attend the whole course.
