Learn to knit colourwork with confidence at our beautiful shop set inside a 17th century barn, in Braintree.
This class will introduce you to some of the ways you can integrate colours into your knitting projects. We'll have a go at stranded colourwork (Fair Isle), intarsia and slipped stitch patterns, as well as Swiss darning (duplicate stitch). And you'll also learn how to work from a chart. After this class you will have the confidence to knit wonderful multi-coloured projects.
You will need to be able to knit, purl, cast on and cast off.
Bring your favourite 4mm needles!
This class is being taught by local knitwear designer and tutor Anni Howard, who has had designs published in books and magazines and by commercial yarn companies. We are very excited to have her teaching for us!
All materials as well as tea/coffee and of course cake are included!
Please bring your order confirmation with you to the class.

This was a really excellent class, I had no previous experience of colourwork but was very quickly able to get started and feel I was making progress with Anni's clear instructions, help and guidance. Information was provided to take away including sample patterns for practice at home and the whole class was a relaxed, fun experience which I would really recommend to anyone wanting to try out or feel more confident in colourwork.
I've been to several classes with Anni Howard and they're really good fun and informative. She always lets you work at your own pace and there is loads of support when you get stuck. This class on colourwork is an especially good one with loads packed in and a beautiful sample to take home at the end.
This was such a great class. I have been knitting forever and came home with great tips to improve my colour work. Excellent whether you are a beginner or looking or improve. Thank you (And the cake was delicious!)
