WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME - HOW I TEACH

  • Each of my students get taught how to read a crochet pattern from day 1
  • I will hold your hand through the process of creating your project
  • Other than the first lesson where I dictate, you can create whatever you like. My forte is bags and patchwork crochet (fusion quilts) but I can guide you through most crochet patterns
  • I encourage my students to select items to create based on their lifestyle needs / wants at the time
  • I do stock some supplies which you can find here: https://crochetclassescapetown.co.za/products/yarn
  • I am available to my students after hours via Whatsapp. I do answer late at night because yes, there is such a thing as a crochet emergency!
  • Please note that I am NOT a designer, I am a TEACHER
  • I can read patterns
  • I can tweak patterns written for other yarn types and make it ‘work’ for yarns available in South Africa

WHAT I EXPECT FROM YOU

COMMITMENT

To yourself

COMMITMENT

To your craft

COMMITMENT

To your talent...we all have talent and we all need to nurture it

There are 3 types of Crochet Class offerings:

  • Regular crochet classes are held two Saturdays or two Wednesdays or Thursdays a month from 10:00am until 13:00pm
  • Private crochet classes are held on a Per Request basis as and when need - These cost R200 per hour
  • Full Day Crochet Workshops are held at various intervals during the year and are purely technique or project based
  1. Regular Crochet Classes is a space where each person is able to create what you wish to. I will walk you through your pattern or you can create a project which I have already done.
  2. Private Crochet Classes are for those times when you get stuck and need that little bit of EXTRA help outside of normal class. These sessions can occur during the week or on a ‘non-teaching Saturday’
  3. Crochet Workshops are announced during the year. They are run in order for everyone to learn a new technique or project. Everyone crochets the same item. Crochet Workshops normally run for a full day. (10am until 4pm) in the week.

  • Hooks

  • I personally, prefer to crochet with only Cotton, Bamboo or Cotton Blends. I therefore carry a small selection of South African Crochet Yarns, but I also provide you with a list of preferred retailers in and around the city
