An introduction to Tunisian Crochet

Course overview

Have you tried crochet or knitting and would like to try something new?

To the untrained eye Tunisian Crochet can be mistaken for a knitted item, with over 400 stitches and combinations of patterns, Tunisian crocheting is great for items such as blankets and shawls.

Over a fascinating 6 weeks you will learn the basics of Tunisian crochet, how to use the appropriate tools and select patterns in readiness for starting your own project.

This course will be delivered by a textile specialist artist and tutor, who has 25 years of experience as a textile designer and artist.

You will be required to provide your own equipment. This information will be sent to you before the course starts.
Please note this course depends on minimum student numbers to run, we therefore do not recommend you purchase any equipment until the course is confirmed as going ahead
