Machine Knitting INTRODUCTION, Saturday 10th February 2024
Learn Machine Knitting in this practical, useful and fully hands-on workshop
Ever wanted to speed up your knitting? Come to this introductory workshop and learn how to use a knitting machine. They can seem intimidating at first but we will guide you through everything from opening the box to finishing a small project to take home. Whether you're an absolute beginner or have some skills that need refreshing, we can get you (re)started.
We will cover setting up the machine, selecting the right kind of yarn, casting on, plain knitting, casting off, sewing up and packing the machine away correctly. If time allows, we can also try out different stitches, two colour work and simple shaping techniques.
You can choose from a few simple projects to practice these skills – wrist-warmers, a small pouch or a beanie hat.
This course is suitable for ages 16+ and for complete beginners or those with some experience who would like a refresher course. Those who have taken this class with us previously and perhaps don't have a machine at home but would like to continue practicing are most welcome to join us again.
Knitting machines will be provided along with all materials, equipment, tools and yarns, although if you have some 4-ply/fingering weight yarn you'd like to use then please do bring it along.
And of course, we'll have those all-important teas and coffees ready to keep your creativity flowing.
Book your space on Machine Knitting Introduction today and learn a creative new skill to last a lifetime!
