More About Our Diploma
It is wonderful to see the increased interest in crochet, however, many people are finding it difficult to get quality tuition in different parts of the world.
All crochet is hand-crafted with no machinery involved. A crochet worker’s pleasure and satisfaction is derived totally from their own levels of experience, talent, enthusiasm... and knowledge.
With many UK and overseas students, the International Diploma in Crochet has long been acknowledged as the ultimate achievement and a most highly sought after qualification in the field of crochet. The three part distance learning course is conceived for real people, living in the real world, living a real life. It was devised and is supervised by Pauline Turner, LCGI in such a way that even the invigilated examinations for Parts II & III can be taken wherever you reside. There is no need to travel but as Crochet Design is easy to reach being based in Lancashire, England, it can be fun to attend at sometime (finances and family/work permitting).
As an activity, crochet enjoys obvious advantages in that it combines with almost any other craft and the course components are so varied it appeals to those with both mathematical and artistic leanings. Note the next increase of fees for the International Diploma in Crochet will be on 1st January 2017.
