learn to crochet a little pot (Porthtowan)

Tuesday 5th May from 9:30am - 12:30pm (3 hours)

At the Cabana Kitchen and Cafe, Mount Pleasant Eco Park, Porthtowan, Cornwall, TR4 8HL

Learn to crochet and make a cute little pot - use as a plant pot cosy, a pen pot, or just a good place to store all those little treasures that don’t have a ‘home’.

This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, experienced beginners and those needing a refresher.

£35 - includes all materials, tea/cofffe and cake.


During this relaxed and informal 3 hour workshop you'll learn the basic techniques and stitches to get started with crochet.  You'll practice your new skills while making a simple little storage pot using a super chunky recycled fabric yarn, with a choice of colours.  You'll learn how to hold the yarn, make chain stitches, create double stitches, make increases, work in the round, and interpret a simple pattern. 

Everyone learns at their own pace, and although it is perfectly feasible that an absolute beginner may complete the whole pot within 3 hours, you should not expect a complete project if this is your first go.  You can be assured however that you will have time to make good progress with the project and will be fully equipped with all the skills and experience needed to finish it at home (with continued help and advice available to you if you get stuck).

The cost of the workshop includes all materials, tea/coffee and cake.  You’ll go away with your pot, crochet hook, pattern, and your new skills that will carry you forward in your crochet adventures.

Discount - for those who have previously attended a Kitty Clarke workshop - you'll be given a refund of £5 when you book this workshop.

A maximum of six places are available, so please book early to avoid disappointment.


Note - This workshop would be challenging for young children, therefore the minimum age is 12 years.  

Cancellation policy - if you choose to cancel your place at least 14 days in advance of the workshop, a full refund will be given.  If you choose to cancel your place within 14 days of the workshop, I will try to fill your place and provide you with a refund, however if it is not possible to fill your place I will be unable to refund the cost of the workshop.
