I'm working with Les Caves de Pyrene as part of their community collaboration to bring you a giant knitting workshop followed by a mini wine tasting! Located just outside of Guildford, the class will take place right in the shop amongst their antique fittings and gorgeous wines! You'll be crafting on the trestle tables, so they'll be plenty of room!
During the class I will teach you how to hand knit your very own snuggly, giant knit blanket, using just your hands! You'll learn to cast on and knit your blanket, and cast off using just your hands. You'll then learn how to felt in the ends to finish your blanket.
By the end of the lesson you will come away with small blanket (roughly: 100x70cm).
After you have completed your blanket you'll be invited to sample some of Les Caves de Pyrene's wines, who are leading the way in ‘natural’ wines: those that are expressive of their homeland; wines made by hand with minimal chemical intervention; and where the winemaking shows maximum respect for the environment.
Refreshments are included. Free parking.
Please note: this course is suitable for ages 18 and above due to the wine tasting.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
