I will be working with Julie and Jane Colquhoun to teach a knitting workshop in June.
The Yarn Academy are running a mixed ability workshop on the 16th June. The location will depend on final numbers but will be in Swanage, Dorset. The cost is £35.
Don’t worry if your skills don’t fall neatly into learning or improving we will cover the areas you need to move your knitting on.
