    There has never been a better time to pick up those needles and get them clacking! Whether you’re a complete beginner or just need a reminder, this is the course for you.

    We have devised a 3-week course (with all the materials provided), designed to give you all the skills you need to read a pattern and create for yourself all of those woolly delights you have been yearning for!

    Based at The Edge Theatre and Arts Centre in the heart of Chorlton, you’ll find like-minded classmates; expert tutors and The Dressing Room Cafe to grab a cappuccino before your class starts!


    Week 1 – Start by learning the basics, including how to cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch and cast off. Then make samples of garter stitch and stocking stitch while becoming familiar with the needles (which you get to keep).


    Weeks 2 and 3 – After a quick refresher from week 1, we will show you how to increase and decrease stitches to give your work shape, knit moss stitch and add texture. Then learn how to read a pattern and use your new skills to knit up one of our lovely items on offer.


    This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or for those looking to refresh their skills.
