Ever fancied learning to knit? I run very lovely, very friendly knitting workshops in Edinburgh and East Lothian in various cafes, restaurants and interesting spaces.
I have a maximum of 6 people per workshop (to make sure that you are not left stranded should you drop a stitch) and we work on producing a small but beautiful project, such as wrist-warmers. The sessions cover and practice all the basic knitting moves: casting on, knitting, purling, decreasing stitches, increasing stitches, fixes and binding off. We also go over that crazy-looking knitting language, different yarns and weights, what you need to look for when you go to a knitting shop and what equipment you need… and any other questions that might come up!
please follow my Facebook page for details of any new dates
If you have a cafe or restaurant and would like to have a class at your venue, or if you are a group (minimum 3 people) who would like me to come and teach please contact me using the form below.
“It was such a lovely way to spend a Sunday evening – learning a new skill in a great location, with good company and delicious cake and very soon I will have a gorgeous pair of wristwarmers that I’ve made myself! Thank you so much @castawayknitting &@centurygeneralstore! Would definitely like to come to the next workshop. X”
