Bristol knitting workshops

Come and learn new knitting skills in my friendly workshops, where you’ll find no judgement and lots of tea. Take a look at my latest Bristol-based knitting workshops below, and if there’s a knitting technique that you want to learn that I’m not covering, give me a shout.

All my in-person knitting workshops take place at lovely independent Bristol knitting shop No Frills Knitting at 15 Cannon Street in Bedminster. It’s close to the city centre, has a load of buses that stop nearby, and is near the Diamon Street car park.

Oh, and if you want to buy a workshop spot for someone but aren’t sure which one’s for them, then you can grab a handy gift voucher in my Payhip store.

I hear it’s a very good place to start.
