Learn to Steek with Janette Budge
29 October @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm£65.00
Wild and Woolly is thrilled to announce that Shetland Wool Week regular and Knitwear designer and tutor, Janette Budge will be making the long journey from her home nearly 600 miles north of Clapton, to run a steeking class in the shop.
Steeking is the traditional Shetland method of cutting fairisle knitting, to open up necklines, cardigan fronts and sleeve holes. Feared by many, but once mastered, is a total game changer – particularly for purl-phobic colourwork-loving knitters.
Join Janette for an afternoon which will reveal a whole new chapter in your knitting story, plus some wonderful stories from her own.
Participants should be comfortable with stranded colourwork knitting and circular knitting. Preparatory swatching will be necessary. More details will be provided on booking.
