I know I’ve been teasing you about knitting classes with knitwear designer Gudrun Johnston for a while now, but it was worth the wait as we now have all the details dialed for not one but two series of classes designed for beginners! Knitting is a wonderfully meditative fall/winter hobby that I’ve fallen in love with. Pair it with cozying up on vintage couch with a glass of wine and good company and that’s what you’re in for!
This is a chance to connect with other crafty-minded people while learning an age old skill, and we hope that you’ll join us!
KNITTING CLASS SERIES I
Wednesday, November 7. 6-8pm
basic knitting vocabulary, tools, casting on, knit stitch
Wednesday, November 14. 6-8pm
purl stitch, shaping by increasing or decreasing stitches, fixing dropped stitches
Wednesday, November 28. 6-8pm
getting familiar with following knitting patterns, picking out the right size needles and type of yarn for a project
Classes will include a set of knitting needles, a skein of yarn, beverages and light refreshments, great company and an extraordinary opportunity to learn from a professional knitwear designer. To keep these classes small enough to provide individual attention, we will only be allowing a maximum of 10 students.
SAVE UP TO $30 FOR BUYING ALL 3 CLASSES!
Cost: $40 for 1 class. $35 per class for 2 classes. $30 per class for 3 classes.
COME TO ONE OR ALL!
Because everyone moves at a different pace, the class descriptions outlined above are very loose guidelines to what we hope to cover in each class. We are leaving lots of wiggle room for first time knitters to come to any of the classes without having gone to previous ones and to offer more advanced techniques to avid neophytes who master the material more quickly. So don’t be shy to sign up for all 3 classes (and get a discounted rate!) or show up to whichever one fits into your schedule.
KNITTING CLASS SERIES II
Designed to build on the basic skills we learned in the first class series, in these drop-in style classes we will pick a project pattern (hat, fingerless mittens, scarf or facecloth) and guide you through the process of bringing it to fruition, just in time to give it as a holiday gift.
Wednesday, December 5, 12, 19. 6-8pm.
Cost: $30 per class. Needles and yarn are not included, so please bring your own!
