This is a one-day workshop that teaches the basics of machine knitting (see below) while also giving you your very own snood (or scarf) to take home. No previous knitting experience is needed (either by machine or by hand), as you will be guided through the whole process and how to use the machine before making the final piece.
In this workshop we use a super soft Geelong Lambswool available in a choice of neutral colours, as well as colourful cottons that you can use to personalise your design. The workshop will be led by Kate Mawby a local Knitwear Designer with over 10 years of experience in the fashion industry.
