Half day workshop at Creative Space, Bristol
Sunday 26 September, 10am – 12.30pm
Come and join Jacki from the Woolly Badger and learn how to knit a cosy pair of chunky bed socks. This half day knitting workshop that’s perfect for those with a basic knowledge of knitting.
You’ll get to grips with stretchy cast-ons, knitting in the round, turning a heel, and using kitchener stitch to close a toe. Everything you need to know to knit a simple sock – with lots of time for questions and hands-on help.
The 2.5 hour workshop gives plenty of time to knit one of these chunky socks, and you’ll get to take home everything you need to finish your second as the pattern, yarn, and needles are all included in the workshop price.
Tickets cost just £40, and there are 8 spaces available, so you can be sure you’ll get all the help you need. If you’ve got questions, take a look at the FAQ below or drop me a line.

Tell me more about the host
I’m Jacki, the designer behind The Woolly Badger. I’ve been knitting for more than a decade, designing for a few years, and teaching online workshops since lockdown. You can see what I’m up to on Instagram, and check out my designs on Ravelry.
Where’s the workshop taking place?
The workshop is happening at the lovely Creative Space on North Street, Bedminster, Bristol. It’s a dedicated space just for creative workshops like this one.
Will there be any refreshments?
I’ll be bringing along lots of tea and biscuits for us all, because tea, knitting, and a nice sit down are the best things in life.
What’s included in the price?
The ticket price includes the pattern, a set of 8mm needles (I’ll have DPNs and long circulars available – don’t worry if that’s gibberish to you, as I’ll explain in the workshop), and either acrylic or wool/acrylic mix yarn. There’s also an option to upgrade to 100% wool yarn for a tiny little fee if you fancy having luxurious feet.
How good do I need to be at knitting?
Not very. If you know how to do a basic knit stitch (the very first one you learn) then you’re onto a winner. I’ll be teaching you everything you need to know beyond that, like the stretchy long-tail cast-on, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, decreasing stitches and closing the toe of your sock.
If you want to have a chat before booking, please do get in touch with me.
What could I do next?
After this workshop you’ll have all the skills you need to knit a basic top-down sock. I fully recommend Winwick Mum for more sock knitting info, but be warned; sock knitting is addictive.
