Learn to Knit Workshop

Learn the wonderful art of knitting. Over the course of two evenings you will learn the basics of knitting and end up with a wonderfully snuggly snood made by your own fair hands.

The first evening will cover an intro to knitting, how to cast on and the basic knit stitch. The second evening will see you finish off your snood, learn how to cast off and sew the snood up.

There will be gorgeous chunky wool in a range of fabulous colours and needles available to buy on the night at 10% discount or you can bring your own materials. You will come away with not just a lovely snood but hopefully a new passion.

The workshops are run by Cassie, who is passionate about knitting and passing on the knitting love. Cassie runs parents and babies knitting groups and knits for both stage and film.

Learn to Bind a Knitter's Journal

In this workshop you will bind your very own Knitter’s Journal. You will learn all the skills you need to make a multi-section soft cover exposed spine book, using the French Link Stitch method. Each student will choose from a selection of printed and plain papers to build up their own personal journal. Pages are made up of: handy Knitter’s facts, useful gauge measurements, project journal pages, knitters graph paper, useful pocket pages for holding notions or patterns and much more. The choice is up to you. These pages are then collated and bound by hand with step by step instruction provided by the tutor.

No bookbinding experience is necessary but a good eye for folding paper is always useful. A sharp bookbinders needle and awl are also used. Materials and equipment are provided for the workshop and each student will leave with their own A5 Journal with at least 112 pages. Students are also welcome to bring in their own A4 papers if they wish to also bind them into their journal.
