About the event

Knitting is a fun and creative craft that benefits all ages! Knitting can help improve motor skills, reading and comprehension, math, problem-solving, and can also help reduce anxiety! No matter you're age, it's a great time to start knitting!

Join us on July 5 for a "quick" knit class where we'll learn the very basics of knitting. In a 2-hour session, we'll learn:  

  • How to make a slip knot
  • How to Cast On (aka: starting)
  • How to make the knit stitch
  • How to bind off (aka: finishing)

Class fee includes all materials: set of small bamboo needles, practice ball of yarn, and illustrated instructional book.

This class is geared for ages 12+. It is a perfect opportunity for you (a parent or guardian) to learn this timeless craft right alongside your (grand)son, (grand)daughter, niece, or nephew!

Please note this class will teach knitting from a right-handed perspective.

Skill Level: Very Beginner

Date & Time: July 5, 1 - 3 PM

Instructor: Jillian Walther

Class Size: Class are intentionally very small (3 participants + 1 adult each),  so that each student can have a more personalized experience and can work closely with the instructor and your fellow learners. 

Class Atmosphere: We strive for a positive and comfortable class atmosphere. This is not a drop-off, baby-sitting opportunity. Parents/Guardians are expected to attend with their children and help with any unruly behavior (if needed). If students are disruptive and/or disrespectful, they may be asked to leave. In this case, refunds will not be given. 

Registration: Due to limited class size, students must register online to reserve their spot. Parents only need to buy 1 ticket per child (ie, parents do not need to buy a ticket for themselves as well). Registration will close 24 hours before the first session, to give the shop/instructor time to gather and review materials.

Age: This class is open to younger learners (ages 12+); however, adults are welcome to learn too! Please note that any students younger than 16 must be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian.

Cancellation & Refund: Participants will only receive a full refund if they give at least a 48 hour (2 day) cancellation notice before the first session. This gives us time to notify others who may be interested in taking this class.

Participants who do not give a 48 hour notice will not receive a full refund and forfeit all class materials. Participants cannot put class fee towards a future class or other product. 

Classes are subject to cancellation due to low registration or other unforeseen (ie "Act of God") circumstances. In these instances, registrants will be notified and fully refunded.
