Spring classes 2015

Here are my current class dates for January – March 2015.

If you require a different day, or an evening class please let me know and I will do my best to help. Classes must have a minimum number of people to run, due to the cost of room hire.

Next Steps in Knitting

Ideal for intermediate knitters who know how to knit and purl stitches and are ready to move on, this 4 week class will help you learn how to increase and decrease, work with colour, and make impressive cables. At the end of the course, you will be able to tackle a pattern with confidence!
