About the Course
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to knit, now’s your chance. This is a workshop for beginners and we’ll be starting with the basics and working at your speed, so you will never be left behind. You will learn how to cast on, knit and purl stitches, plus basic increases and decreases. You’ll make a garter stitch pot-holder and have a pattern to take home so you can make another. Come on your own, with a friend, or bring your dad, all are welcome to come and enjoy the wonderful world of knitting.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
