Teaching Crochet

Last year I achieved one of my.big goals - I started to teach crochet. I began with 1 day workshops which I teach in The Coven in Wigan - a great little vegetarian/vegan/gluten free cafe and restaurant with the most amazing food ever!

Then, later on in the year, I was offered the opportunity to teach st night school as part of the councils community learning programme. These take the form of 10 weeks of 2 hour sessions and are heavily subsidised at just £40 for the whole course which I think is just amazing. I taught my first beginners course at the end of last year and it was so much fun. I had a fabulous group of students who worked hard and leant so much. By the end of the course they had made mini amigurumi owls, flowers, wreaths and shawls. I learnt lots to (you never stop learning as a teacher) and discovered that I really enjoy teaching adults as well.as children.

I didn't blog about it as I was so busy getting to grips with my new job and the paperwork side of things. I've decided that, as I start a new beginners and improvers course next week, I will share my experiences with you all. I hope you enjoy it.
