About the Course

You do not need machine knitting skills, however it would help if you enjoy other crafts as some parts are quite fiddly.

A group booking discount is available, and can be arranged for a mutually convenient time. The course can run on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.

In the morning you will learn how to cast on with a neat edge, knit stripes, knit patterns with punch cards, turn a heel by partial knitting and bind off. After lunch you will spend the afternoon knitting your stocking, as there is a maximum of 3 students you will get lots of support from the tutor.

The tutor will be Jane Taylor who has been teaching machine knitting for 18 years at art colleges in Bristol and currently Nottingham. The workshop will be run in her home studio in the picturesque town of Wirksworth.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

The workshop fee includes lunch, tea, coffee and biscuits and materials.

As it's almost Christmas there will be a glass of fizz at the end to celebrate your achievements.
