About the beginners' crochet workshop

Join Debbie Tomkies on her fun, friendly beginners' crochet workshop at her lovely creative space at A4 Studios and AIR Gallery in Altrincham. From holding the hook to making your first ‘granny square’ you’ll soon be hooking with confidence!

Debbie's groups are small to allow lots of individual attention and left-handed crocheters are very welcome!

What’s Included?

We provide all the yarns you will need and a crochet hook to take home. You will also receive comprehensive, fully illustrated handouts and patterns from Debbie's exclusive range of crochet designs so you can keep hooking once the class is complete! We also include tea, coffee and biscuits.


The price for this one day workshop is £60 including all materials.

What will I make?

During the day, Debbie will take you through:

  • Different ways to hold your hook and how to crochet comfortably
  • Making your foundation chain and first stitches
  • Essential crochet stitches (double, half treble and treble)
  • Shaping basics (increasing and decreasing)
  • How to make a simple granny square
  • Following a crochet pattern
  • Neat finishing and joining
  • Spotting mistakes and how to correct them!
  • You can expect to take home several small projects, including your first granny square (or two!).

Course level:

This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners and is also great for crocheters in need of a refresher or just to have a little 'me time'! This is a course for over 18s. Where possible we welcome younger participants but please ask before booking.

This workshop also makes an excellent choice for a baby shower, leaving gift, wedding celebration, birthday party. Why not make a group baby shower blanket to wrap the new arrival in the love of friends and family? Private group bookings can also be arranged on request.


This is an in person workshop and will be hosted at Debbie's studio at A4 Studios and AIR Gallery in Altrincham, Cheshire.


This workshop runs from 10am-4pm with a break for lunch (and tea/coffee breaks)!

Keen to learn but can't attend in person?

We are planning to offer online classes live via zoom where you can enjoy the course from the comfort of your own home or studio. As the course will be live you'll be able to ask questions and Debbie will be demonstrating techniques on screen. Your patterns and handouts will be sent to you as downloadable pdfs to keep, view and print. If you are interested in zoom courses, please email and just put 'zoom classes' in the subject line and we'll let you know when we go live!
