 Crochet Lessons at Baked Worthing

All my crafting workshops are held at Baked, a lovely cafe in Worthing that sells great coffee and delicious cake. There will never be more than 4 people at each workshop. I limit the numbers so that I can provide the best quality teaching, and offer extra support if you are struggling, or stretch you if it comes easily. I can also teach both left and right handed people to crochet. Once you have attended the workshop, you will be given exclusive access to video tutorials which are only available to course attendees.

In addition to the Workshops listed below, you can book me for a one to one lesson, or if you know 3 other people who want to learn together you can book a private workshop with me, perfect for a birthday get together, quiet hen do or baby shower. All private lessons are tailored specifically to the needs of the people attending.

Are you a venue that would like to offer crochet lessons? Send me an email and we can discuss booking me to come to you to teach a workshop.

If you would like to book a place on any of the courses below, please email me at rachaelkaygifts@gmail.com or use the form on the contacts page.
