These workshops are delivered in a fun and engaging way in a lovely community setting of a home studio.

All materials are provided and you will walk away having learnt some valuable skills you can put to use in your own time and for your own creations.

The workshops are delivered by an all-round knitwear professional who has worked at the highest levels in design, technical development, consultancy, and teaching. She specialises in hand, domestic and industrial knitting and teaches all aspects of these skills. Her own designs have featured in both British and Italian Vogue, as well as i-D magazine.

Below are more details on the types of skills to be taught:

Beginners

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or looking to refresh your skills, the Beginner Class will give you a firm grounding in the basics of machine knitting. Beginner Classes require no previous knowledge of knitwear or knitting machinery.

You’ll gain an understanding of how the machine works and what it can do, with plenty of time to practice and experiment.

You will learn the following techniques:

  • Casting On

  • Stripes

  • Increasing & Decreasing (Changing The Width Of The Knitted Fabric)

  • Lace Holes

  • Ladders

  • Casting Off

You’ll create a range of samples to take away and learn from. Also, depending on your progress, you will be given the opportunity to knit yourself a scarf at the end lesson.

NB: The machines used for all classes will be Brother knitting machines. All equipment and yarns will be provided, along with technical notes with instructions to go with your class.

I went to a beginner’s knitting machine class and I am totally hooked. Princess is a lovely, patient teacher and so helpful. She showed me how to cast on and cast of, knit hems, strips, use a punchcard and I could try different yarns. I made myself a scarf I really love. Princess provided me with information about what we did, which machines are good for beginners because I am considering to buy one. I can’t wait to go back for more classes and get more experience. Thank you Princess!!! I wish I could upload a picture of my scarf.

Princess is an amazing teacher I can't wait to go back and learn more about how to use my knitting machine. I have had my machine for so long but did not know where to start, but she made it calming and simple for me. I learnt to make a hem, to cast on in two different ways and to cast off. I made a beautiful scarf with the wool she provided which I am so grateful. I really cannot recommend her enough.

Great lesson! Since my first class I have purchased my knitting machine and have booked more lessons which I’m super excited about. P is a great teacher, I left my first class feeling really inspired.
