Whether you are brand-new to machine knitting or are a bit rusty and want to refresh your skills this course is an ideal opportunity to learn the basics in a friendly and supportive environment and leave with a wearable scarf that you will be proud of.

This workshop will cover all the essential skills of how to knit with confidence where on the first day we will cover how to cast on and cast off, colour changing and knitting stripes, hems, pin tucks and how to use transfer tools to create decorative effects. We will also look at the essential technique of creating tension swatches to enable you to calculate correctly the measuremnets of your scarf that you will knit on the second day. You will leave with a range of samples documenting the skills covered as well as detailed printed notes that you can reference as you continue to knit in your own time. We will also cover how to maintain your knitting machine, where you can purchase machines and most importantly the common mistakes that can occur whilst knitting and how to avoid them….. i.e. ‘why does my knitting keep falling off the machine!’

The course is run at your own pace and I like to keep the classes small to ensure each individual receives the tuition they need. I can cater to varying levels of experience and want to make sure that by the end of the workshop you have learnt the essentials of the knitting machine and leave feeling confident and positive.

Printed notes are provided but you may want to bring a camera and notebook to write your own personal notes

‘What a fantastic time we had at the beginners’ workshop at Ash Farm. Everything is so much clearer now! Thank you Sian for your clear instructions , careful demonstrations and hands on help. I am really looking forward to the punch card workshop in February! Onwards and upwards!!’ Linda Harrison

‘Thank you Sian for a very enjoyable beginners knitting course. Sian is so knowledgeable, patient and easy going and made learning very enjoyable. The new workshop is a great facility; its lovely bright and contemporary. I would thoroughly recommend Sian’s courses and also her fab textiles. The only bad news is that I think I now have the knitting machine bug as I want to buy a new machine! Thanks again Sian. Big hugs to you and the alpacas. Hope to see you again soon.’ Mo Moroz
