Knitting Workshop 101

Learn how to knit yourself a cozy winter scarf or snood



2 hours Class size 1 to 20     label $80

Give nan a run for her money! Easy to pick up and hard to put down, knitting is a versatile, fun and relaxing AF craft to master. Not only is it super easy to learn and build your skills, but it's also a great social activity. With anything from dishcloths and scarves, to intricate sweaters and socks a possibility, the options are endless!

In this workshop, you'll learn how to knit yourself a beautiful scarf or snuggly snood from scratch. Using lush chunky yarn we'll lead you through the absolute basics of knitting, covering how to cast on, mastering the knit stitch, and how to cast off. Once you've mastered the knit stitch, the process becomes meditative and calming. It's a great skill to have for mindfulness and the perfect activity for cosy nights in.

This workshop is designed for absolute beginners, who are curious about the craft but have yet to pick up a pair of needles. We'll provide you with needles and yarn (which you'll get to take home).

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Set of 15mm (US19) solid Maplewood needles
  •  1 x ball of chunky wool (80m). It’s 100% natural, 100% renewable and totally biodegradable too.
  •  Guidance on basic knitting stitches, how to cast on and off and weave your ends.
  •  For those with a little knitting experience, additional stitches can be taught
  •  Takeaway tutorial links to complete the project at home if you don’t quite finish in class.

What to bring

BYO wine/drink if you fancy a glass of red as you knit (ooooh-la-la).

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a unique gift for her or gift for mum.

Vincent Coniglio Apr 2021


Pauline was a great teacher. Very patient abs took the time to show each of us the basic of knitting and she did a great job at troubleshooting when it was needed :D. Would def attend one of her classes again. The venue was great too and it was definitely a plus to get a glass of red during the class. Can’t wait to receive the info on how to finish my scarf, super excited! Thank you for having me.

Such a fun class and Pauline was able to tailor it for different abilities really well. The wool and needles provided were beautiful. A really great evening and now I have a new skill and project to work on. Thanks so much!

Aurelia Stapleton Aug 2020


Great class! Tricky to start but good once you get going. Teacher was lovely and helpful and patient. Venue was also good with lots of space and opportunity to bring wine or to have a cup of tea. I am really happy with my scarf I now have to wear. I would definitely recommend this class :)

Lovely fun night learning the basics of 'how to knit'. Our teacher Pauline created a friendly relaxed atmosphere, providing us with gorgeous wooden needles, yarn and instructions to get started with plus further resources to access from home. Pauline's assistant (I'm so annoyed her name escapes me at the moment, Lucy?) was incredibly helpful too. Work-Shop HQ is a great creative space that I'd be happy to return to again.
Thank you, Libby

Tania Nichols Jul 2020


This was an excellent class. The teacher was knowledgeable and enthusiastic as well as quite funny. I thought it was very good value considering the wool and knitting needles were Included in the cost of the class.

Annabel Birmingham Jul 2020


Pauline, materials venue great and felt like good value.
Perhaps to many students to get maximum support especially for real first timers.
But lots of fun and would recommend to others.

Olivia Hoopmann Jul 2020


Great class I recommend to all
Teacher Pauline was lovely, inspiring and very thorough
I already have a scarf knitted and hope to do much more!

Asmita Kailainathan Jul 2020


Really enjoyed this class. I’ve never done knitting before, but left the class in love with it!
Absolutely loved the materials we got. The wool is sustainable and biodegradable that is ethically sourced (means a lot to me). And the knitting needles we got were so lovely - I look forward to continuing my knitting journey. Pauline was a great teacher - a lot of us struggled but she was very patient and really took her time around class to show us the way. Would love an intermediate sesh. Thank you for a lovely evening. Highly recommend this class! Xx
