Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

What opportunities will this course give me?

There are so many benefits of learning a new skill; it stimulates the brain, boosts your opportunities for social interaction and offers an escapism from the 9-5. Add creativity into the mix and you've got a winning combination!

We know you'll fall in love with your new hobby!

What will I be learning?

This workshop is ideal for anyone with no prior knowledge of the craft. Learn how to work basic crochet stitches, including:

• Crochet terminology
• Working in the row

A college certificate will be awarded on request.
