There will be opportunities to expand your knitting and crochet skills with classes taught by Joanne, Rachel and Kat on a range of topics including making garments that fit, knitting your new favourite socks, using a magic loop, and a knit and crochet surgery where you can bring your projects that you are stuck on and we can help get you back on track. We will also be firing up Kat's dye pots, heading out to forage (for those who want to) and enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. There will also be plenty of opportunity to relax, chat and stitch away.
