Workshops 2024

Knitting School will resume on 9th January in Oswestry, 18th January in Shrewsbury. The first lesson is for complete beginners while the following lessons are great for learning, developing and improving your knitting confidence. Baffled by bobbles, confused by cables, or confounded by knitting in the round? How do you change colour or make things bigger or smaller and why use different cast ons and bind offs? What does happen when you’ve finished an item or how do you lick up for the button band?  Becca is brilliant at explaining and bring these techniques to clarity.

Brioche is not just bread! Find Brioche workshops on 17th February and 16th March.
