Learn new skills in a relaxed, friendly environment
Small class sizes for individual attention
Learn a new skill in a relaxed and friendly environment with one of our Knitting and Crochet workshops. The workshops are held in the shop on Tuesdays and Sundays (when the shop is shut) and are led by experience tutors.
Knitting workshops cover Knitting for Beginners. Knitting with Texture, Knitting with Beads and Professional Finishing Techniques. Crochet workshops include Crochet for Beginners, Crochet Funday and Christmas Crochet for Improvers.
The cost of the workshops includes the yarn, full tuition and light refreshments (please bring your own lunch). You will also receive 10% off further purchases on the day.
Places are limited to 5 to ensure individual attention so please book early to avoid disappointment. If you would like to book a workshop place as a gift for someone else just let me know and I’ll send you a gift voucher confirming their place.
