Event description

Description

Workshop details:

Learn how to knit a chunky knit. Join extreme knitter Lynda Sharp for a two hour workshop that will teach you the basics of working with chunky merino wool. Lynda will guide you through the art of working with, and caring for, merino and demonstrate how to make a throw, baby blanket or cat basket using 100% Australian merino. One skein of wool is included in this class which will be enough to create a 70cm x 70cm baby blanket or cat basket however additional skeins of wool are available for purchase at $55 per skein (pre-order & pay on day + limited selection available on the day). If you are interested in creating a larger throw, Lynda will be able to guide you, including teaching you how to join skeins (approx. 4 skeins are required to make a Queen sized throw).

Beginners welcome! This is an excellent chance to delve into the world of chunky knits.

What You’ll Get:

  • The skills and knowledge to work and care for merino
  • Chunky knitting skills so you can knit away long after you leave the workshop
  • One skein of wool (choose from cloud grey, cream or blush)
  • Tea, coffee and cake (YUM!)

*Our team will be in touch upon ticket purchase to confirm colour preference for wool and see how many skeins of wool you anticipate you will require
