Tutor Judith Schur is ready to introduce to the absolute pleasure she gets from knitting. Learn to cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch, rib stitch (a combination of the 2) and cast off and to read a pattern, then you’re all set to go. After that, all you need is practice and a sense of adventure. Tutor Judith Schur has loved knitting since she was a child and previously had her own yarn shop. She has a City and Guilds trained in Hand Knitting and Design and is passionate about sharing the knowledge and skills needed to get everyone knitting. This beginner’s class is to give you a taste of what you can achieve with even basic stitches. You will be able to tackle projects as gorgeous as Judith's chunky knit blanket and scarf. And with a bit of practice, you will soon be ready for her follow-up classes that take you class by class on more elaborate knitting adventures, from Cable Stitch and Brioche to Sock Knitting and more. Level: For absolute beginners or people in need of a refresher of the basics.
