What you will do
2.5 hour 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.
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 fine 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'
Now you can
- create ribbing around the ankle
- 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

About your host, Fabrications
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 20 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".
Please bring 100g of DK wool and 4mm knitting needles or you can purchase in Fabrications shop.
