It's a horrible day outside today, matching the general post Christmas/end of January gloom, so we thought we'd cheer you up with more information about our workshops.
At the weekend we have the first of our two part workshops, this one being about Brioche and next Tuesday Eva will be back for a felting workshop. The following Saturday will be a crochet workshp and Sunday sees our inaugural spinning workshop which we are really looking forward to.
27 January 2018 Brioche
In these two workshops we will begin with basic, straight brioche to learn the technique. In the afternoon we will add cast-ons, increasing and decreasing and patterning in brioche.
You can book just the morning, just the afternoon or both with the lunch as an option.
Tuesday 30 January Needle-felting
Come along and learn to needle-felt with our tutor Eva.
Eva will take you from basics to a small item in this evening session.
