I ran crochet workshop and weekly crochet sessions at various locations around Sussex (in Brighton and the surrounds) for over 5 years.  I found that crafting over a cup of tea and cake always makes the experience a whole lot more enjoyable.  And the cafe environment provided a wonderful atmosphere for this.

I used to run a weekly sessions in Rottingdean at Open Art Cafe, Rottingdean on a Thursday, 10am - 12pm. This session still runs without me as the wonderful ladies that meet there still go to have some crochet fun and inspiration.

The sessions, I used to provide all the materials for participants to learn and practice (yarn, hooks, worksheets, patterns, needles, snips) as well as a plethora of notes and printed patterns. I also had kits available to purchase along with some lovely yarns. 

In these sessions, I helped those who participate (ladies and/or gents) to learn how to crochet starting at the beginning: holding a hook, attaching the yarn, holding the yarn, and creating stitches, following a pattern, and making delightful items.  During the week, I would email all those who attended with some more helpful tips, video links and the worksheets from the completed sessions.

If you would like to set up your own crochet group, contact me and I will help you with all the information (and possibly materials if available) I used to make this a success.
