Exploring shapes in Crochet

exploring shapes in crochet workshop

Have you ever seen a crochet chart or diagram? Not sure what all those symbols mean? The aim of this crochet workshop is to introduce you to international crochet symbols and show you how to follow a crochet chart as well as a written pattern.




08 Oct 2021


9:30 am - 2:30 pm

What will we cover?

Simple seaside shapes will be crocheted with step by step instructions provided in both a written pattern format as well as a crochet chart using international symbols. In being able to follow international crochet symbols, patterns become truly international, which is particularly helpful if you come across patterns from other countries which you’d like to make. Japanese crochet books are increasingly popular and they often use charts.

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work.


You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

Some basic crochet experience is required. Suitable for those who have attended our Beginner’s Crochet workshop or similar.

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

Please bring your choice of colours in a DK yarn (cotton works well) and a 4mm hook.

What will I take home with me?

By the end of the workshop, as well as having gained confidence in being able to take on written patterns and crochet charts, you will have crocheted lots of seaside shapes which can be used as decorations, changed into coasters or sewn onto garments or cushions.


Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.


During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.
