Learn how to knit and have fun while making new friends.

This series of classes is for absolute beginners.

The class will a maximum of eight students so that you get the individual hands-on support when you need it.

You will be making small knitted squares as you practice the techniques and stitches then sewing them all together to make a patchwork cushion cover or blanket (you choose the size, style and colours). Be inspired and encouraged by the tutor and other learners and go on to become a knitter!
