Knitting is a craft that has withstood the test of time because it is versatile, practical and easy to learn. It is also a relaxing social activity and great for keeping idle hands busy during casual conversations.
This course will start with the basics and caters to beginners of all ages. Youíll start with the basic stitches, working through to your first finished piece under your hostís tutelage.
Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. Participants will be provided with all the equipment on the day, including a set of bamboo knitting needles, a wool darning needle, and a ball of extra chunky yarn.
Classes are available fortnightly on Saturday afternoon's for a cosy wool session, with a non-alcoholic drink of your choice. Kick back with a drink and enjoy the company and conversation with fellow lovers of knitting.
Bookings are essential.
This class requires a minimum of five people to proceed.
Classes are open to everyone from the age of 12 onwards. Parental supervision is required for all children under the age of 16.
Refund Policy: Full refunds given with 5 days notice. Dates can be changed with 3 days notice.

Event was informative. The host, Ciara, was wonderful, easy going and patient with someone like me who took a while to get started. The venue, Father's Office, was great too, a relaxing environment. At the end of the session, I felt I had enough knowledge to continue knitting on my own. and look to taking this basic skill to the next level. 5/5 by Gordana Morak 24-7-2016
Ciara was a great teacher - she did a wonderful job of tailoring the class to the slightly different levels of participants which is a tough thing to do! She is very knowledgable and was happy to answer all sorts of questions! Lovely venue! I hope to attend another class in the future once I've consolidated my beanie knitting skills! 5/5 by Anita Castanho 24-7-2016

I really liked the atmosphere, the equipment provided and the instructor Keira was very helpful. My only gripe was the group was experienced at knitting as I am a beginner so didnt quite finish my beanie when others did! Overall I really enjoyed it! 4/5 by Alicia Donovan 1-5-2016
