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.

Introduction to Amigurumi Workshop

Learn to Crochet in 3D to make your own animals or other creatures! Amigurumi is the japanese art of crochet stuffed toys and dolls, that are created by working in the round to create 3-dimensional shapes.

This is a beginner/intermediate class as although it is a simple technique, it can be a bit tricky at first. Absolute beginners are welcome, but it is recommended that you have a little experience. You can book in for a one-to-one beforehand or beginners class to learn the basics.

Following feedback we have extended this to a 3-hour session plus tea and biscuits for sustenance!We will provide a small selection of materials and hooks for you to use while you practice the stitches and then a 10% discount in the shop for you to get started on your project!
