Knitting isn't just for your grandmother anymore
Knitting isn't just for your grandmother anymore. And if you're interested in learning to knit and creating some incredible, handmade pieces for family and friends (or even yourself), you should check out the upcoming workshops for knitting offered by Craft Bound. Recently, Craft Bound held an Introduction to Knitting Workshop in North Perth, where twelve eager wannabe knitters were joined by an extremely adept knitting teacher. We were seated at a communal table and given a ball of yarn (plus another to take home to practice at the end of the class), a set of knitting needles, and a set of take-home instructions.
The workshop materials provided by Craft Bound for the Introduction to Knitting workshop
The two and a half hour workshop flew by, even for those of us students (primarily myself) who were less than coordinated with the knitting needles. Our instructor taught us to cast on the yarn as well as some basic stitches; she then walked around to ensure everyone was working well per her instructions, giving succinct and patient one on one advice and aid to each student.
The class concluded with some encouragement to join a crafting meet-up for which Craft Bound is well known; they are held on the last Sunday of each month at Royal Park Hall in North Perth, and there is an $8 admission fee.
The Introduction to Knitting workshop cost $65 through Craft Bound's website; this fee covered all materials and instruction - no need to bring anything else.
