Private lessons are a great way to pinpoint exactly what you need to learn. What you miss out in the social experience of a workshop you gain in getting through a lot of information in a short space of time or really taking the time to dig deep. We cover both knitting and crochet up to an advanced level but especially with the advanced level stuff we'd appreciate knowing beforehand what it is you need to cover so we can collect together materials or get our head into the right space! If you just want to learn to knit or crochet, allow us to tailor the time to you and what you'll find useful over the long run. Anything goes really, just give us a try!
Private lessons will usually take place with Eleanor either before the shop opens at 10.30am or after the shop shuts at 6pm, or on Fridays when Zoe and Emma are in to cover the shop. Other days and times can sometimes be accommodated. There is no option to buy here because this will need to be discussed and agreed in advance with Eleanor and your best bet for doing that is to call us on (0115) 9474239. The lessons cost £25.00, are non-refundable and we will charge in advance but they can be bought in half hour increments or sometimes people buy an hour and use it over time - we aim to be flexible.
Please be aware that if you've bought your yarn and pattern from us, you don't need a private lesson to get help from us - we absolutely support the customers that support us! You might still want to buy a lesson to get more generalised advice but if you've bought it here then we support you in making it. If you've bought elsewhere we will charge but you're also allowed to go back to them and ask for help!
