Purls of Wisdom

Knitting feeds the mind, body and soul. Join us at Bell House for a 5 week knitting course where you can unwind, learn a new skill, and take home something wonderful.

 Learn techniques for creating a patchwork of squares and rectangles from which larger pieces such as scarves, cushion covers and baby blankets can be constructed.

You will learn and practise the following techniques:

  • Knit, purl & stocking stitches

  • More complex stitches such as rib, moss stitch, basket weave stitch and cabling, and making stripes

  • Casting on and casting off

  • Making up and finishing off

  • Recognising the symbols used in knitting patterns

Course dates: 18th May, 25th May, 8th June, 15th June, 22nd June. 11am - 12.30pm

Course fee: £55.00 for 5 x 90 minute workshops.
