Learn the Basics Knitting Courses
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.
These courses are 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.
Book both the Foundations and Building Blocks and get £10.00 off.
Each level has an optional materials pack to use during the course (£15.00) or you can bring your own.
