Knit for Victory Special Offer – learn to knit at the V&A
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on September 24, 2009
The Victoria and Albert Museum is possibly the craftiest museum London has and it’s been an S&B London favourite as long as we can remember. This autumn they’re offering a series of ‘make do and mend’ practical courses that will help you kick the credit crunch, and get you crafting your way to Christmas.
You can learn some of those old-fashioned skills and translate them into creative designs for today, and you can start with unravelling the mysteries of knitting with guru, Trudy Healey Potter and the V&A Knit for Victory course.
Whether you have never cast on a stitch in your life or have already grasped the basics of knit one, purl one, Trudy will simplify the tricky world of tension, yarns, and patterns.
SPECIAL OFFER: The V&A are offering S&B Londoners 20% off full course price. Our exclusive price is £184 (Full price £230) Quote: Knitting offer when booking
INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS: Stitch and Bitch London members are also being exclusively offered the chance to purchase individual sessions at £35 per session. (Quote: Stitch and Bitch when booking)
The course includes all materials, a tour of Waterloo-based shop I Knit London shop, and 10% discount off shop purchases.
The course is suitable for beginners.
That’s a whole lot of knitting for your money, and how often can any of you say you learned stitching skills amongst a collection spanning 5000 years of art and craft. Certainly beats sitting at home squinting at a book.
