Event description

Description

A weekly knitting group for women who have English as an additional language.
We meet every Tuesday during term time, 10am-11.30am at Jelly in Broad St Mall for knitting, crocheting and chat.

All levels welcome from beginners to pros. A friendly group who support one another through language and knitting.

The knit group meets weekly during term time only at Jelly (in Broad Street Mall, near New Look), Tuesdays 10am-11.30pm.

It was originally set up in 2007 as a craft group for women who have English as an additional language. It's purpose was for isolated ladies to come together to practise their English skills and connect to the Mothertongue network, and become more integrated into the community. We are continuing with that ethos at Jelly, but now in a more open setting shared with our artists and visitors to the space.

We have a few experienced and helpful knitters amongst our group, and a few basic materials to support any beginners, but in general this is not a learn-to-knit class. We welcome other form of hand/needle craft like hand sewing or crochet. We ask all attendees for a suggested donation of 50p per visit towards our running costs, plus hot drink/biscuits when available for an extra 50p.
