Learn how to crochet or improve your crochet skills with this 13-weeks course!
Crochet is a fun and relaxing hobby that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It is also a great way to de-stress and relieve anxiety. Crochet is a versatile craft that can be used to make a variety of items, including blankets, scarves, hats, toys, and much more.
This Beginner Crochet Course is perfect for anyone who has always wanted to learn how to crochet but never knew where to start, but it can also be very helpful for who already knows the basics and wishes to learn more.
THIS IS A ONE-TO-ONE COURSE, NOT A GROUP COURSE, SO YOU WILL BE GUIDED BY THE TEACHER INDIVIDUALLY.
In this course, you will learn the basics of crocheting, including how to hold your crochet hook, how to make basic stitches (moving onto more advanced stitches) and how to combine these stitches together. You will also learn how to read crochet patterns and how to finish your projects.
At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate of achievement.
