We have helped to organise a mini knitting festival with Malvern Library which runs throughout October. The highlights are 2 Rowan Workshops run by Emma King and Sarah Hazell. They are 2 hours
long and cost just a fiver! It’s a great opportunity to try out a workshop without having to pay for the whole day. Anyway, here is the complete list of events:
The BIG Knit-In
Saturday 3rd October 2-4pm in the Gallery
Come and join this one-off knitting club to launch Knitting month @ the Library. If you can knit, bring your knitting. If not, come anyway and we will help you
Mini crochet workshop with Rowan designer Sarah Hazell
Wednesday 7th October 6-8pm
Sarah will be running this mini workshop and you should go away with something you’ve made! Unfortunately not suitable for beginners because of time
constraints but fine for anyone with a basic knowledge. Cost £5 plus materials. Booking is essential.
Men’s Learn to Knit Workshop
Saturday 10th October 2-4pm
This is a men only learn to knit session. Men and ladies will be on hand to teach the basics; casting on, knit,
purl and casting off. It’ll be held in a meeting room so you won’t be in public! Materials will be available to borrow.
Men’s Knit ‘n’ Natter Sessions
Saturday 17th & Saturday 31st October 2-4pm
A social knitting session for men only. No booking necessary, just turn up with your knitting. It’s a great way to get new ideas and meet other knitters
without the risk of turning up to a knitting club where it’s all girls…
Professional Finishing Tips with Rowan designer Emma King
Friday 23rd October 3.30-5.30pm
Emma will be presenting an abridged version of her popular professional finishing workshop. She will cover the all-important mattress stitch along with other
top techniques for finishing your knitted garments. Cost £5. Booking is essential.
Kids Learn to Knit Workshop
Saturday 24th October 2-4pm
A workshop to teach children the basics of knitting. We will cover basic ways to cast on, knit stitch and casting off. There will be ideas of things to make using basic knitted
squares. Suitable for children from 7 years old. Materials will be available to borrow. Booking is essential.
