Learn To Crochet – private tuition in Surrey. Buy a voucher – the perfect gift for a friend, family member or why not treat yourself?
What’s included in the Voucher?
The cost of the voucher includes:
- 2 x 1.5 hour one-to-one tuition.
- Starter kit with everything you need (crochet hook, yarn, stitch markers, needle & project bag).
- Class notes, including photo tutorials.
- Hot or cold drink & cake (please advise of allergies when booking).
Which crochet techniques are covered?
During the course, you’ll make circles, a traditional granny square and a solid granny square. You’ll also learn how to join motifs together.
We’ll cover most of the essential crochet techniques such as:
- How to hold the yarn & hook.
- The basic crochet stitches – single crochet, double crochet & slip stitch.
- Starting & finishing rows / rounds.
- Weaving in ends.
- Changing colours.
- Different ways to finish off.
- Joining motifs, either by sewing or crocheting.
How much does it cost?
For the tuition, materials & a printable PDF voucher, the cost is £45.
For an additional £6.99 I can also gift wrap and send the starter kit and voucher to the recipient by 1st Class Recorded mail.
Why are two sessions recommended?
One session often doesn’t give enough time and practise to fully absorb the new skills you’ll learn. Two sessions, ideally spread no more than 1 week apart, gives you time to practise what you’ve learnt in the first session and build on that in the second class. Often, after you’ve gone home from the first class and had a go at crocheting independently, you’ll soon discover you need a bit of extra clarification on a few points to build your confidence and put you on the right track.
What are the times and dates of the lessons?
Generally, I am available to teach private lessons at the following days and times:
- Mondays 7:30-10:00pm
- Tuesdays 7:30-10:00pm
- Fridays 9:30 – 11:00am or 7:30-10:00pm
- Saturdays 9:30 – 11:00am
- Sundays 9:30-11:00am
If you need half an hour here or there, I can usually accommodate. You can arrange the times and dates before you purchase the voucher or the recipient can get in touch with me afterwards to make arrangements.
How long is the voucher valid for?
The vouchers are valid for 6 months from the date of issue. This can be extended under mitigating circumstances.
Where does the private tuition take place?
I teach one to one sessions in my home studio in Hersham, Surrey. It’s a good sized room and I have lots of craft books and crochet projects to help inspire you!
Under some circumstances, I am able to teach at the students home.
What is your teaching experience?
With a background in Art & Design and I working in product development, I’m naturally attracted to all things crafty and I absolutely LOVE sharing and teaching my passion for crochet. I have taught crochet now for nearly 6 years, since December 2013. I have taught regularly at the art centre in Walton-on-Thames, the Riverhouse Barn . I have also taught for the WI Surrey & for the Kennet Valley Guild of Spinners & Weavers. Over the years, I’ve acquired a steady stream of private, one to one clients, ranging from complete beginners to more advanced students that require help with specific techniques or patterns.
I can teach all levels from complete beginners to more advanced students.

Everyone is welcome!
I warmly welcome everyone, regardless of sex, race or age… although there is a caveat to age : I predominantly teach adults. I am happy to teach young adults or children that are mature enough to concentrate and are willing to learn. With private tuition, I do ask that any child under 18 is accompanied by an adult.
