Arm Knitting Workshop
June 22nd, 11am-3pm
Learn the intriguing art of arm knitting. You will learn how to knit using only your arms, no needles! 'Armed' with luxurious 100% hand dyed chunky wool you will learn the arm knitting process. It is a 'loopy' idea but no knitting skills are required and anyone can learn. You will experience the joy and gratification of being immersed in mindful creativity, hand crafting your own fashionable scarf and have a fun filled exploration of your creative expression.
