Tunisian crochet is a hybrid craft between knitting and traditional crochet. It's not at all hard to learn but it's very gratifying to do and it's endlessly variable and open to creativity.
I teach this at Denman College.
I regularly teach at Denman College, a range of day and residential courses from Beginners and Improvers through special focus such as flowers, Christmas and bag and tub making, as well as techniques such as Broomstick lace and Tunisian. Next year I will also be teaching an intro to Loom Knitting.
Book direct through Denman.
