Learn To Knit Workshop – 11th April 2014

generic knitWhat better time to master the basic skills of knitting than when there are so many wonderful patterns available, including those in Woman’s Weekly, of course! Our workshop is perfect for you if you’ve always wanted to knit and never got round to it, or started but gave up and want to have another go. It’s also ideal for the novice knitter who wants to improve their technique. Following the great success of the workshops at our Woman’s Weekly Live! shows, we’re delighted to give you the chance to learn with our expert technical team.

She’ll be there, along with Marva Brown, our Technical Knitting Assistant, who has many years of experience in knitting, and Freddie Patmore, our Knitting Assistant and the newest member of the knitting team. She previously worked as design consultant and workshop tutor for Rowan Yarns. Susan Horan is the other member of the WW team.
