I currently teach a variety of knitting and spinning workshops.
I am able to offer bespoke workshops for a small group, or on a 1:1 basis. Please contact me if you would like to arrange a bespoke workshop.
I also teach at The Makers’ Cabin in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. Details of the workshops on offer can be found below.

Beginners Knitting and Next Steps in Knitting
If you already know the basics of knitting, but want to learn more, then the “Next Steps in Knitting” workshop is for you. In this 2-hour workshop, I will help you progress to the next stage by teaching you about different types of increases and decreases and how to work some simple lace patterns.
You will receive patterns for 2 spa cloths which will let you practice the techniques learned. Yarn and needles will be provided.The following dates are available for this workshop at The Maker’s Cabin:
Beginners Knitting: Tuesday 25th September, 10 am – 12 noon
Next Steps in Knitting: Tuesday 2nd October, 10 am – 12 noon
Introduction to Magic Loop Knitting
In this 2 hour workshop, the aim is to teach how to knit a small circumference tube using the ‘magic loop’ technique. You will take home the pattern for a pair of simple wrist warmers which are designed to let you practice the ‘magic loop’ technique. You must be able to cast on, cast off, and have basic knitting skills to get the most from this workshop.
I ran this workshop in early June at The Maker’s Cabin in Letchworth. Here are some comments from the workshop attendees:
“Fun and enjoyable and a new skill”, “Interesting tips to use on new projects”
Keep an eye out on The Makers’ Cabin website for future dates for this workshop.
Introduction to Sock Knitting
This 2 hour workshop aims to teach the anatomy of a sock and show how a knitted sock is constructed. You will apply this knowledge to knit a mini sock as a decoration, for which a pattern will be provided.
Please note: this is not a beginner’s workshop – you should be able to knit in the round to get the most from this workshop.
