Want to review this course?

What an amazing time... a warm September evening spent with the wonderful Sophie on her boat. We’d booked a private workshop to learn how to arm knit a chunky throw. Sophie is incredibly patient and none of us could believe we’d arm knitted our gorgeous throws in just under 2 hours! We’ve learnt a skill for life (just ordered yarn to make another!). Thank you Sophie... we had the best time ever.

I absolutely loved this class. We had a great time chatting and crafting and I came away with a beautiful knitted throw.
Her instructions were super easy to follow and the throw was so enjoyable to make.
Great atmosphere, great people, great evening!

I came to this course with a friend as it was a really good evening. I love the blanket I made and Sophie was very good at teaching me as I had never knitted before. I love the boat it is so cute and cozy and I would love to do another course with Sophie again <3

Thank you Elodie for a lovely review!

Such a fun evening. Total relaxation on board while producing a gorgeous blanket that makes you want to snuggle! Sophie is a great teacher and arm knitting is easy to pick up.

I attended this course with a friend last week. It was a very relaxing evening in a beautiful setting. We had a lovely evening chatting and knitting, and under Sophie's guidance we both left with a wonderful completed throw. Highly recommended! I'd never done any knitting before and had no problems :)

Attended this course earlier this year....was a lovely evening and I left with a gorgeous knitted throw thanks to the guidance of Sophie. I can highly recommend, even if you are a knitting novice like me!
