Ready to Join?

You are welcome to spend a cozy afternoon by diving into the handcraft tradition from Northern Europe! During this small workshop you will learn the basics of knitting. Tiia has a long experience of knitting in Finland and will instruct you to get started with your own project. The workshop is an easy going event over a cup of tea and cookies.

The workshop starts with a small project, as an aim for everyone to knit a simple square. These squares will be merged into a larger entity, possibly a scarf or a blanket!

After the small project you can just enjoy the afternoon by knitting more small things to practice, or you can start your own beginner project, for example a scarf or legwarmers. Instructions to these models are also provided in the workshop, as well as some materials for them. If you have a vision in your mind of a color or material you would like to use for your own project, we recommend you to explore also local wool shops in advance and to bring your own wool for it.

Materials:
Needles and yarn for the squares are provided by the workshop. Everyone will also get the notes of the basic steps of knitting to take home in the end of the day.
