    There has never been a better time to pick up those needles and get them clacking! We’ll take you step by step through the basics, leaving you confident and wanting more!

    Based at Pottery Corner in Chorlton, you’ll find like-minded classmates and the chance to have a wander down Beech Road awash with independent boutiques, restaurants and delis before the class starts!

    In this 2-week beginners course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to knit your first projects, including casting on and off, basic knit and purl stitches and how to increase and decrease your knitting. In no time you’ll find yourself knitting, not only in front of the TV, but in the park, on the bus, the possibilities are endless. We promise you’ll be addicted and we'll send you off with your knitting needles and wool to continue your new found skill at home!

    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).

    Week 2 – 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.
