Needles and all materials are included so just bring yourself!


What's included?

As part of the course you will receive a pair of knitting needles and yarn to take home, fully illustrated handouts and a selection of Debbie's exclusive knitting patterns. Tea, coffee and biscuits are also provided during the classes.



The price for this 3 week course is £90 and includes all materials.


Course level:

This course is suitable for absolute beginners and as a refresher for knitters who may not have picked up the needles in a while. This is a course aimed at adults. Where possible we welcome accompanied younger knitters but please let us know before booking.



This is an in person course and will be hosted at Debbie's studio at A4 studios and AIR Gallery in Altrincham, Cheshire.



The Beginners Knitting course runs over 3 weeks on consecutive Tuesday evenings, 6pm-9pm.


About the classes

Debbie likes to be able to give students individual attention so we keep our classes small and friendly. This class has a maximum of 4 students per class meaning there's plenty of time for your questions and to pick up valuable tips and tricks as you go. Debbie is adept at teaching both left and right-handed knitters (being a natural left-hander who taught herself to knit right-handed!).


Keen to learn to knit but can't attend in person?

No problem! We are planning to offer online knitting classes live via zoom where you can enjoy the course from the comfort of your own home. As the course is live you'll be able to ask questions and Debbie will be demonstrating techniques on screen. You'll also be able to chat with other students and share your progress if you wish, during the course. Details of zoom classes will be available soon. If you would like to be kept up to date with workshop dates, please sign up to our newsletter and you'll get all the latest DT Crafts news!

For more in-depth tuition with formal accreditation, you may also like to visit our sister site, Making Futures CIC, where Debbie teaches City & Guilds Creative Studies in design and handknitting via distance learning.
