Learn something new! Open classes in West Hampstead the week of 17 March 2014

Want to take a sewing, knitting or craft class in our West Hampstead shop? Here are this week’s classes in which you can still grab a spot!

On Saturday morning we’ve partnered with the Bump and Baby Club to offer Knit a Baby Hat for mums to be.

Learn to knit a baby hat

Learn to knit whilst making an adorable roll-brim hat for the new little one in your life! In this three hour class, experienced knitting teacher, pattern designer and mum Camilla Miller will teach beginners to knit by making an simple newborn baby hat. You’ll learn knitting basics, including how to cast on and off, how to knit in the round and how to decrease. This class is designed especially for mums to be. Sign up here.

On Sunday afternoon, join us of the second class in our series on printmaking, Block Printing for Beginners with Nancy Straughan!

Introduction to Block Printing

In this class, you’ll learn the art of block printing whilst making a set of hand-printed napkins. Block printing has been practiced for hundreds of years and Nancy will make it easy for you to achieve a set of traditionally printed napkins to take home with you. You will have a chance to mix your own professional fabric paint and learn how to build a beautiful printing block that to achieve a similar look to Indian block printed fabrics. You can also bring your own textiles to print in class! Sign up here.

In addition to our classes, don’t forget we’re open late on Thursdays for our Knitting and Handwork Evening! Drop in with a project and join us for a cup of tea (or wine!) and a chat. No need to book, just come on by!

Finally, since we don’t have a sewing class going on this Thursday night, space in our sewing studio can be rented at £8 per person per hour. This includes the use of a sewing machine and our overlocker, all of our sewing tools and full access to the biscuit tin! Call or email us to book.
