Workshop – Thursday July 29th, 2021

The Art of Darning with Emma Mathews

Our first workshop in what feels like an etermity ... and what a workshop it is! Here at KWA we are so excited to be welcoming you all back for an evening with learning, darning and fun!

Socko brings you a workshop to teach complete beginners the lost art of darning.

During this 2 1/2 hour workshop, we'll start with a brief history of techniques from different cultures and look at examples and tools. The majority of the time will then be practical as Socko founder Emma teaches you how to darn your own clothing. You're welcome to bring items of your own that need mending or there'll be plenty of fabric there to practise on.

As with all our workshops, there will be snacks, beverages and bottomless tea available.


Size of class: 10 students
When: Thursday July 29th 2021, 18:30pm - 21:00pm
Fee: £40
 

Learn How to Crochet Virtual Course

iKnit7 with Friends – Starter Series with Aoibhe Ní : Zero to Crochet

One of the most important things we do as yarns shops is we teach. We introduce people to the wonderful world of wool! Nothing beats the expression on the face of someone where it just 'clicked', they solved the code, they get it! Isolation and social distancing prevents us from doing our usual Learn How to Crochet Workshops for the foreseeable future. It is something we all miss and a challenge that has been thoroughly discussed between my friends and myself at iKnit7, how can we offer the best tutoring possible for beginner crocheters without physically bringing them into the shops?

Together with renowned designer Aoibhe Ní and online tutor extraordinaire Carol Feller, we have developed an online course specifically with the beginner crocheter in mind. Whether you are completely new to crochet, or you were once taught back in the day and are in need of a refresher, or maybe you are looking for the ultimate 'all in one' gift to someone wanting to learn, the Stolen Stitches Starter Series: From Zero to Crochet is exactly what you are looking for.

Taking you from the very basic anatomy of a stitch, the different qualities of yarn and their weights, hooks and their sizes, different stitches and techniques – you name it … at the end of this course you will have finished three projects, including your first pair of mittens, a granny square and a decorative flower, and you can most definitely call yourself a crocheter! Best of it all, everything comes neatly wrapped up in one package with materials included, you can work through the whole course in your own pace, in the safety of your home.

Zero to Crochet is a power-packed workshop series that takes you by the hand from utter crochet novice right the way through to completing three projects. Conquer crochet basics as you learn the lingo and technical know-how of everything from wool, yarn and the anatomy of a stitch. Develop your unique eye and keen set of skills that will leave you with all the skills you need to tackle your next crochet adventure. Time isn't a factor as we developed this course to be consumed in whatever stolen moments you can find. Guidance from a professional and experienced teacher with direct communication established through the course platform, no questions are too stupid to be asked.

Iknit7 is a collaboration by seven unique yarn shops: Emily foulds, Ginger Twist Studio, Wild and Woolly, Knit with attitude, This is Knit, Tribe Yarns and A Yarn Story. To learn more visit iKnit7.com
