Does anybody know where I could learn to crochet in Melb? I am a complete beginner.
I have checked with the CAE but their classes are already full and google searches don't seem to bring up much.
Preferably somewhere in the city or the inner suburbs (I'm in Brunswick) would be good.

I tried joining the s'n'b Melb yahoo group to ask but my membership is still pending after 2 weeks.

(I have cross posted this because I only got one response in Australia specific forum)

I'm from Melbourne too. South East. I've seen some info in ravelry for Melbourne groups. But there aren't many. There is so much help on line to assist you. I'd suggest youtube for visual learning, crochet cabana is good and many more that I cant think of at the moment. Joining a forum is very helpful too.
If I can help I'd be glad to, I taught myself on line almost a year ago, although I could make a simple granny square for years, I didn't know what else was out there or how to read a pattern. I now design my own.
checkout my blog.

Check out community centres for craft groups and also churches. Most churches have a craft morning and you don't have to be part of the church community to participate. Even if they don't list crochet on their advertisements, there is bound to be someone who can teach you.
Another way to get a teacher AND do a kind deed at the same time is ask at nursing-homes if any of the residents would be prepared to teach you - not only will you be helped but you will also be giving the people there the very valuable gift of making them feel as if they still have something to contribute.
