CROCHET TASTER WORKSHOP :: BEGINNERS AND REFRESHERS WITH PROSECCO, TEA & SCONES

£76.00

In person workshops are back! Join us in person at the beautiful 24 Royal Terrace boutique hotel for an afternoon of crochet, chats, prosecco, tea & scones on Sunday 30 October at 1pm - 4pm.  

Crochet is an addictive, rewarding and mindful craft that will keep you happy for
years to come. This taster session will be suitable or beginners or as a refresher if
you’ve crocheted before.
In this session we will cover the crochet basics;

  • Explore and experiment with different ways to hold your hook and yarn
  • Learn to make crochet chains
  • Learn and practice two basic stitches you’ll need to begin your crochet journey
  • Begin making a granny square
  • We will consider the importance of tension and using different weights of yarn


The humble granny square can enhance any blanket with beautiful colour and
texture, as well as a plethora of other makes. Learning to make a granny square can
provide an essential construct of beginner’s crochet.
Remember that in crochet it’s easy to take your work back and start again – relax.

The workshops are 6 people maximum, so book along with a pal if you fancy! 

Materials included in your kit:

  • 5.0mm crochet hook
  • 6 balls of Aran weight 100% wool (3 contrasting shades)
  • darning needle

Skills required: None! Total beginners welcome. Refreshers too, if you are feeling a wee bit rusty and want to get started again.

And if you don't see anything you fancy kit-wise, please get in touch and we can put together something to suit your taste. 

Whichever kit you choose will be waiting for you at the workshop, and it is everything you need.

24 Royal Terrace is an independent family-run boutique hotel situated in Central Edinburgh at the foot of Calton Hill. The hotel is nestled amongst the grand Georgian townhouses on Royal Terrace. The lounge where the workshop is held is on the ground floor and fully accessible.
