Learn to Knit class starting soon! If you’ve been admiring the yarnbombing around Altrincham and wondering how you can learn to knit, look no further!
Starting Tuesday 10th April, I’ll be running a new, Learn to Knit class. Aimed at absolute beginners, you’ll learn how to cast on, work knit and purl stitches, increases, decreases and casting off – all the essential components that will start you off on your knitting adventures! My classes are relaxed, friendly and fun – I keep class numbers small so you get plenty of opportunity for questions and one-to-one help. Find out what my students say here 🙂
All materials are provided and you will take home your needles, a lovely selection of yarn and comprehensive instructions. I have also chosen a selection of patterns from my design collection that you will be able to knit confidently as part of the course.
The class will run for 3 consecutive Tuesday evenings, 7-9pm. The price for the 3 weeks is £55 for the 3 weeks, for non-members the price is £70 for the 3 weeks. Membership of the studio is just £5 per month and you’ll be helping support us to put on exhibitions, events and community activities whilst also saving £10 on your course fee!
I am the resident knitting expert for Knit Now magazine, producing their ‘how-to’ videos and monthly knitting guides for the last four years. I have published two knitting books with Interweave and Search Press – Complete Knitting Skills (with 27 online videos) and 250 Knitting Stitches. I’ve taught knitting for over ten years and have helped lots of lovely people learn to knit with confidence. (I’m also left-handed so can get you knitting whether you’re left or right-handed!).
