    About this class

    Come on down to Hackney and ‘sock’ up some Fabrications love in this sock knitting workshop. No need to get cold feet over this sock class, you’re guaranteed to have a ball.


    Did you know?

    Pavol Durdik did what no man or woman has ever done before. In Puchov, Slovakia on 14 July 2015, Pavol set a world record of putting 48 pairs of socks on… In 60 seconds. An unbelievable ‘feet’, which has lead to some spectators calling Pavol a modern day ‘Sockrates’!


    In this class

    Let Jill Bulgan guide you through the process of knitting socks from top to toe! This class is suitable for both beginners fairly new to knitting or making 3d objects and intermediate knitters. If you know how to cast on, knit & purl and cast off you’ll be all gravy in this class. The focus is knitting socks with two needles and creating ribbing for elasticity.

    You will receive enough instruction to complete your socks at home or at Fabrications fortnightly Thursday evening 'Craft Club'

    You will need 100g of DK yarn and 4mm needles!


    Now you can

    • understand how to 'turn the heel' by picking up stitches
    • shaping for your own toes for extra comfy socks as well as exploring some wonderful and crazy patterns
    • follow a simple sock pattern from start to finish

    Fabrications - an East London based creative hub!

    Fabrications is an independent gallery, shop and workshop dedicated to the best contemporary textile practice and design, with a particular interest in eco-conscious design.

    Fabrications opened in June 2000 in a refurbished derelict shop on Broadway Market in Hackney, East London. The shop's founder, Barley Massey, has spent the last 16 years finding ingenious ways to turn scraps into original fabrics and using recycled materials to create cutting-edge items. Since 2012, "The Imaginarium", a fully-fitted working studio, has hosted workshops and classes.

    Barley has been awarded as one of Kevin McCloud's (Grand Designs) Green Heroes for her minimally-processed, up-cycled products, which "demonstrate a lightness of touch backed up by a rigorous approach".
