Please select a preferred date*

5 June 2023/12 June 2023


Message (optional)

*We'll do our best to book you onto your preferred date, but you may be offered an alternative date if this is not possible.

Or contact or phone 07871 392432.


When we confirm your provisional booking we'll ask you to come into our shop in The 1924 Building , Campbell Street, Belper at least one week before the start of your course.

Why do we do this?

a) We'll ask you to choose your yarn for your project (usually a 'Granny Square' blanket - although this may vary)

b) We'll show you how to hold everything and make a simple chain so that you can practise at home and get comfortable handling the hook, the yarn and the work (this is so that everyone starts the course from the same point)

c) We'll ask you to pay a £10 non-refundable deposit (we will try where possible to reschedule or otherwise accommodate any unexpected cancellations).
