Workshops at my Studio
I run a range of machine knitting workshops from my studio in Persistence Works in the centre of Sheffield, starting with the basics up to designing your own patterns and products. I have 10 years experience teaching knitted textiles at college and university.
On these courses, small group sizes ensure plenty of tuition and with a wide variety of yarn available you can knit in your favourite colours and textures!
See my workshop gallery for lots of photos of the workshops, and below for further information on the workshops and how to book!
One-to-one tuition is also available on request, just get in touch.
Beginners Machine knitting
Learn to machine knit and make your own scarf!
This one day workshop will introduce you to the basics of machine knitting, perfect for the absolute beginner.
We will go through how the machine works, casting on and off as well as some simple but effective decorative techniques such as stripes, lace holes and ladders.
In the afternoon we will move on to using the punch-card to make 2 colour patterned knits, and you will have the opportunity to knit a scarf using any yarns you like from the wide range available at my studio.
At the end of the day you will have a range of machine knitted samples and a scarf to take away with you.
The cost of this workshop is £70 per person.
