We have been able to reduce the price of some courses. If you need more information, or would like to have a chat about which workshop is most suitable for you, please contact us by phone, email or pop into the shop.

Beginner's Crochet Classes run on the first Saturday of every month from 10.15am - 12.15pm. Suitable for the absolute novice or for those want a refresher to get them going again. Learning Crochet is very popular at the moment and our informal classes will give you the confidence you need to start making blankets, scarves and more. Beginner's classes are £14 per session.

 

 

 

Crochet - beyond the basics: Crochet isn't just Granny Squares (though these are great!) so we run a range of informal courses for those want to move on from the beginner stage, or want to learn a new technique like Bavarian or Tunisian crochet. A basic knowledge of crochet stitches is needed for most of these courses; please email or pop in for a chat if you want to know if a course is suitable for you. Content of the course can be tailored to your individual needs and interests. Courses cost £14 each.

 

 

Knitting Workshops

Our informal knitting workshops run each month and are suitable for complete beginners, those needing a quick refresher and anyone who needs help with a tricky pattern or new technique (eg: knitting in the round, fair isle, intarsia, cables). Just let us know when booking what you would like us to help you with. These classes cost £14 each.

 

Sewing Classes

Getting To Know Your Machine: do you get your sewing machine out and wonder what goes where or what to do with everything? Whether you have a brand new machine, or one that has been hidden away for too long, our tutor, Ruth Casson, will help you thread up, adjust your tension and explore all the different options your machine has to offer. For those with more experience, machine embroidery workshops are also available. These sessions can be arranged on a date to suit you; please call the shop for further information.
