What you will do
2.5 hour workshop
After over two and a half hours of knitting and knattering, you'll feel like a pro; you’ll have learned all the basics including:
- The knit and purl stitch
- How to cast on and cast off
- Stocking stitch
- Garter stitch
- How to buy wool and what wool to buy for certain garments
The class size is kept quite small so you will be get a lot of help and tuition throughout the course of the workshop.
This school were the first workshop venue to set up and teach knitting and crochet in London, i'ts what they are best known for and they've had many years of teaching these wonderful mindful and relaxing crafts (although over the past 7 years we've grown so check out our other workshops).
All workshops come with tea (or coffee) and cake of course! It's an absolute must when knitting. If you are vegan or gluten free then just let us know when you book so we can make sure we have sweet treats for you too.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.
