The Registry crochet retreat weekend is designed for all those who always wanted to crochet but never tried, or tried and gave up. Everyone will be an absolute beginner*. You will be taught the basics of crocheting in simple steps ending up the weekend by being a professional granny square crocheter. Your expert for the weekend started crocheting only a few years ago but is now a complete addict and a good example of how quickly you can learn to do complicated patterns once you have mastered the basics. Examples of her work will be available, so you can see what you can achieve. (* Note however, we can also do classes of mixed ability beginner through to advanced with projects to suit this will be discussed on booking.)

On arrival on Friday night you will be treated to pre-dinner drinks then a scrumptious two course dinner followed by a relaxing evening toasting your toes in front of an open fire.

Saturday morning, after breakfast and a stroll along the river (if weather permits and wholly optional) the workshop will begin at 10.30 am. You will be guided through the first few steps of learning to crochet including chaining, magic rings, single and double crochet stitches. There will be a break for a cup of freshly brewed coffee - and maybe you might want to try some of Bob's famous homemade shortbread?!

After a light lunch, the class will continue with the guarantee that you will have your very own granny square by the end of the workshop. You will be served homemade cake and tea half way through the afternoon.

Following dinner, the evening is all yours to do as you wish - practise your crocheting by the fire sipping a wee glass of wine or just yours to relax and unwind.

Following breakfast on Sunday morning, workshop 2 will begin. This will look at creating a Christmas decoration, handmade and crocheted by you and with love.

There will be a light lunch before departure.

Included in this weekend are all your food, drinks, cake and coffee. Also included are the yarn and your own crochet hook to take away. Patterns will be printed and also available to take with you. On top of this you will experience the luxury of The Registry Guesthouse - bespoke décor, open fires, excellent hosting and amazing views.

Cost of the weekend package is £380 single occupancy, or £280 to share a room. Please contact the Registry Guesthouse to enquire about availability and dates.
