    It was a brilliant session. Alicia is a fantastic teacher, very patient, calm and friendly! Even after repeatedly explaining some steps. The location was very cosy and the others on the group were friendly too. I went from never crocheting to now being able to double and treble crotchet. I am more confident in the craft.

    It was excellent - Alicia explained things very well (and very patiently) and it was great to be with fellow crafters. I'll definitely be booking on another one.

    Great intro to crocheting, which started really from the basics which I definitely appreciated as someone that hasn't even attempted to crochet before, very patient and kind teacher and I loved that we could keep yarn and needle afterwards to continue practicing. I am really impressed as I can be quite impatient with learning new skills such as this, but I was super surprised that I ended the class knowing a lot more than I expected to through the patience of Alicia! I didn't know how to even hold the needle and ended the class being able to do a single stitch, double crochet and started to learn triple. I didn't get as far as starting a granny square but perhaps if the group was smaller, I could have had more 1-1 help from the teacher and progressed a little faster - this is my only criticism of the class but I still enjoyed it overall and would give it 4/5 stars. Also, the location was great in the coffee shop, and loved having a coffee half way through - thank you, this is a great club and I hope to continue attending future classes after practicing at home.

    INSTRUCTORS
    Alicia Taplin-Mudford
    Alicia was taught crochet as an adult by her mother and has been exploring the seemingly endless possibilities of the hook ever since. Her expertise covers a wide range of techniques including amigurumi, intarsia, tapestry, overlay and mosaic crochet. She loves to explore how colour choices can affect the success of a finished piece. Alicia has also dabbled in a variety of crafty activities like stained glass, leatherworking, wood carving, hand dyeing and weaving, to name a few, but most often returns to the comforting rhythm of crochet.

    Alicia Taplin-Mudford is available for private bookings

    I am available most weekends and some evenings.
    I can teach any subjects offered in our classes (Beginners, Corner to Corner, Amigurumi, Next Stitches)
    I can also teach advanced techniques for example; mosaic/overlay, tunisian, colourwork. I can guide you through a complex pattern, written or charted.
