Ever wanted to learn to knit but those little sticks of wonder have just thrown you?
Or perhaps you learned a while ago and you wish to re-ignite the crafty wizard in you?
Be it your first time knitting, or looking for company while completing that knitting project you started awhile back, our beginner's knitting workshop is perfect for some modern knitter natter. Collaborating with Harris + Hoole, situated right outside Canon Street station, you'll also be spoilt with gorgeous cakes and artisanal coffee!
Jen & Jenny (co-founders of Stitch & Story and columnists for Ask The Expert in Craftseller magazine) will teach you all the basics including how to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off. Each class will host 10-12 people and the places are available on a first come first serve basis. This is to ensure you have enough attention from us to help you with any difficulties.
