As part of the changes to our community crafting group, I am organising specialised workshops led by teachers from inside, and outside, the group.

Our first workshop takes place next Wednesday, 28th May and is a Professional Finishing course. It is aimed at knitters of an intermediate or advanced level who want to improve the quality of their finished items with better joins, seams and sewing.  I previously wrote a review of the course which I’d taken in Winnie’s Wool Shop and found it to be practical and really helpful.

The workshop takes 2 to 2.5 hours and costs €25 per person.  This will include refreshments and excessive amounts of homemade cake!  Places are limited to a maximum of 8 people so bookings are on a first-come-first-served basis.  There is homework in advance of the class – namely you will need a few prepared squares to work on.  Details will be provided on booking.

For any interested crafters, here are the details:

Workshop Description: Learn how to put your project together and give it the professional finish which takes your knitting from “home”made to “handmade”. Bring along a project that you wish to work on and swatches to practice. At this workshop you will learn ” how to block finished pieces ” order of work in making up a garment ” invisible seaming (mattress stitch for stocking stitch, garter stitch) with class notes supplied.

Where & When: St. Joseph’s Primary School, Fairview 7.30pm, Wednesday 28th May.

Booking and payment in advance in essential. Please contact me on northsideknittingandcrochet@gmail.com.
