If you would like to knit but are a novice or not very confident of your skills, then our 'Learn the Basics' courses would be ideal for you.
Aimed at knitters who know how to cast on, knit, purl and cast off, we offer two, three week courses, Foundations and Building Blocks. Each course is made up of three sessions and cost £40.00 per set of three.
knitting and purling technique check
increase and decreasing techniques and when to use them
Tension, pattern reading, mini-project to complete at home
Working in the round using double pointed needles and circular needles
Colourwork -- intarsia and stranded
Lace & cables
At the end of each session we will give suggestions for patterns and yarns which use the skills learned that week to produce a small project.
If you would like to join our courses but have never knitted, we also offer a stand-alone session (Basics) which teaches how to cast-on, knit, purl and cast-off.
