Meet your trainer

Leisa Thrippleton has always been creative and interested in crafts, having been doing art and craft work all throughout her schooling years and into her adult life. Leisa took up crocheting more than eight years ago while she was working in the city and wanted to fill in her time while she was on the train. Leisa is considered an advanced crocheter, having completed many projects from easy levels to complicated projects – one even took her six months to finish.

Leisa has now started her own crochet business called the Crochet Hut which is based in the Melbourne suburb of Berwick.
