Contemporary crochet at NYAS encourages a bold, colourful and ultimately fresh approach to a practical art form which became popular in the 1800s.

With tuition from Darja Savonina and Andrew Perkins, each week you will focus on new projects and explore new techniques.

Our classes are for anyone new to crochet. For anyone more experienced, we will help you to look at new ways to use the skills you already have to work on contemporary crochet projects.
