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.

My Dream Sweater Workshop with Julie Knits in Paris
Our dear friend Julie Dubreux is returning to Knit with attitude with a 3-hour hands-on workshop enabling you to never knit a jumper that doesn't fit ever again!
Create your own sweater that fits your body shape and suits your fashion sense. Learn about top-down raglan sweater construction and proportions, and how to shape a sweater that is just right to make you feel good! The workshop also focuses on how to adapt sweater patterns to your body, and how to choose the size and ease that will work best for you.
As this is a Friday evening workshop we're thinking why not turn this into a proper Parisian night, Julie has promised to bring tasty freshly made baguettes from Paris, and we'll top that up with some French wine and cheese! This is truly a workshop-party you don't want to miss!
Size of class: 10 students
When: Friday October 25th 2019, 18:30 - 21:30pm
