Knit in the Cafe: Beginner's Learning to Knit Workshop with Willow and Twig


Knit In The Cafe: Beginner's Knitting Workshop will take place over two Thursday nights at Higher Grounds Cafe and the Cellar Bar with knitting maven Faith Farrell of Willow & Twig (and LQ ;) )

Faith has been knitting for years now with great love, that she's excited to share! Willow and Twig was born in 2015 as a way for her to share her love of knitting with the world, and she hasn't looked back since. She shapes her knits with inspiration from the Island she loves. Willow and Twig knits are meant to be worn! The idea is that they can take you from hiking in the woods, to going on a coffee date. They are made to be lived in!

At Willow and Twig, Faith strives to create classic, vintage inspired designs with modern twists and colours. She loves experimenting with texture and fibre. There is nothing that makes her happier than creating something with her own two hands, and knowing that it is warming someone out in the world!

In this workshop Faith will walk you through the basics of knitting, learning the fundamentals of casting on, knit stitches, purl stitches and casting off. As well as some helpful tips and tricks! By the end of the two nights each participant will have a Classic Stockinette Knit Scarf (as pictured on the left) to take home!

Faith created this pattern specifically for participants of the workshop, for ease and fun. A classic stitch and pattern that will give you ample practice of all the basics, so that you can grow confidence in your new craft! The end result being a classic piece that you can wear for many seasons to come!

Faith will also have a selection of her own Willow and Twig knitwear available for purchase at a special discount for our workshop attendees.

Workshop fee includes: Wool, a Beginner's Knit Kit (that will include needles and some basic tools that you get to take home), two 1.5 hour group & one-on-one instruction, as well as online support between classes via an exclusive Facebook Group & lots of fun!

There will be tea, coffee, wine, beer and treats available for purchase at the time of the workshop.
