For Payals class:

The Crochet for beginners course is a comprehensive introduction to crochet. We will start by introducing the crochet hook, working out how to hold the yarn, and start the foundation chain. Crochet stitches are easy and we will cover all 3 major stitches in this course. We will finish by learning how to make a granny square, learning to finish your work properly and even try joining squares so you can attempt a project. Designed for complete beginners or anyone wanting a refresher, this course will give you tips and tricks to achieve even tension, choose wisely when buying yarn and understanding diagrams and patterns.

Please bring your own scissors, ruler or tape measure, pen and paper. You may also want to bring a wool needle to tidy up ends. 

About the Tutor:


Payal is an accomplished and experienced crochet teacher with over 10 year’s experience in the art. She has worked in the publishing and business development industry for many years, where she was involved with a number of art and craft magazine titles.
Her passion with craft led her to learn and research crochet as a way to escape the stressful world of business and company politics. She eventually gave up the corporate life to raise her young family and to devote more time on crochet and teaching.
She now operates her own company which specializes in Mindful Craft which she believes is a path to creative meditation.
She teaches the art of Crocheting at Community Colleges and at Art Centres to small groups in an interactive and social environment. When she is not crocheting or teaching, Payal uses her blogs to promote healing and therapeutic value of crocheting. Her ambition is to inspire everyone to express their own creativity by using a hook and yarn.
