    In this class

    A fabulous workshop for complete beginners (which doesn't mean you can't join if you are a bit more experience too!).

    Imagine yourself watching a film, all snuggled up on the sofa on a Sunday evening. You pull your cozy blanket over yourself and realize that you made that yourself! PHWOAR! How incredible would that be?

    In this class you will:

    • learn the basics of knitting
    • discover techniques such as cast on and cast off
    • learn how to Garter stitch (which creates a lovely squishy feel)
    • figure out how to sew items together
    • make a fabulous, super cozy and snug blanket!

    The beauty of it is you don't even need to bring anything. We will provide you with:

    • a pair of adorable bamboo knitting needles
    • a pattern
    • yarn and squares to get cracking!

    And you can take it all home with you!

    As if that is not enough, there will be some tea, coffee and yummy cakes for you to enjoy throughout! Just bring your fabulous self and we will handle the rest (and even bring some fellow Obby and knitting lovers to join in on the fun!).

    • If you are left-handed - no need to worry. We have worked with hundreds of left-handed students before and they have managed to master it, so will you!

    Now you can

    • knit at home and create garments for yourself
    • make your own gifts for family and friends
    • meet some new Obbyists in your local area

    This was a class for beginners and the instruction was very clear and everyone was made to feel welcome. Needles and wool was provided and written instructions were available to take away to consult at a later date. Address was easy to find but had to ask for exact location as the class is up some stairs. Very enjoyable!

    Hello Obby I am writing to give my appreciation to the 'Tea and Crafting' course and the teacher Nessa I attended on Monday 20th November in Covent Garden. It was lovely being there and the group that attended were really friendly and supportive. I am really impressed with the tutor Nessa who took time to show me how to knit and explain to me the types of knitting we were doing.She was so patient and understood my needs as a Deaf person and was helpful to explain in a bit of sign language and visual demonstrations what I had to do.She provided a hot drink and nice cakes which I loved. I felt really at home and comfortable there and I hope to go again soon to work on my knitting skills. I would advise anyone to attend it is really enjoyable. Regards Haroon Anwar
