Knitting for Beginners – 10.30-12.30
The cost of the course is £115, including all of your materials. Deposit £30 with the balance due prior to the start of the course. This workshop is restricted to 4 places.
We are delighted to be able to run workshops again. We have done our best to understand the rules (although they may change) and have put together workshops that will still be fun and informative, while keeping everybody as safe as possible. There are certain things you will need to do, such as wear a face mask for the duration of the workshop, there can be no sharing of equipment and you will need to bring your own drinks or snacks. We will provide materials and equipment and we will need to keep a record of who attends each workshop and when. We will make sure everything in the workshop area has been cleaned and made as safe as we can for you.
Given the above we are only able to offer a limited number of places for each workshop. You will be able to secure your place with a deposit, with the balance being due no later than the start of the workshop. (Failure to pay will result in you not being able to attend the workshop and you will lose your deposit.)
Those of you with vouchers will be able to pay in full, using your vouchers, in advance of the workshop taking place. You will, however, need to book you place via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or during opening hours by phone on 01799 218429, as our website isn’t able to process voucher payments.
With so many people trying their hand at Knitting during the past few months, we anticipate that places will be taken up quickly, so please don’t delay if you want to secure a place.
Our Knitting for Beginners course will start with the basics of casting on and casting off and we will produce a ‘flower brooch’ in our first workshop. In week 2 we will move on to ‘Dishcloths’, these will be knitted from corner to corner teaching you increasing and decreasing techniques. (Although called dishcloths, they also make excellent wash cloths and smaller versions make excellent reusable makeup wipes.) In week 3 we will make a pair of fingerless mittens, and you will learn more about shaping, how to make a rib and how to cable. In our last week we will make a hat and learn about knitting ‘in the round’. Lots to keep you inspired and build your skills, with plenty of hints and tips along the way. High quality yarns, needles and patterns are provided and are yours to keep. By the end you will have 4 completed projects and a good set of skills to start you on your knitting journey.
