We’re not sure when and we can’t be sure who started it, but somewhere along the line, knitting has become the quirky girl’s pastime du jour. As well as the occasional hip indie girl you see knitting on the train, there’s a pack of crafty stars getting in on the needle action too, including Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz and Madonna. If you’re feeling out of the loop, then we’re happy to show you how.
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 knit and purl stitch, how to cast on and cast off, stocking stitch and garter stitch. Keep your new-found skills topped up at home using your take away kit of bamboo knitting needles (lightweight, so great for beginners!), yarn and a ‘how to’ guide.
Do have a look at our other Beginners Knitting workshop where you learn how to knit as well as learning how to knit a hat at the same time. More information here.
Or why not try our popular Giant Arm Knitting workshop – you don’t even need to use knitting needles and you’ll make a large blanket in one evening. Yes you heard right – a blanket large enough to cover you in ONE NIGHT only
Duration: 2.5 hours
Includes: Knitting Starter Kit consisting of bamboo needles, a ball of yarn and take home instructions
