About the Event

Make Do Drink is delighted to bring you their first Make Do Drink; Knit

A 'Learn to Knit' workshop hosted in partnership with LilyKateMakes. 

Everyone loves a bit of knitwear, and whether you're a chunky knit obsessive or a fairisle fiend knitting is no longer just for nana's and newborns! So if you've always wanted to know how to tackle your own projects (just think of the weird and wonderful variations you could come up with!) and want a new skill to add some handmade to your wardrobe this could be just the workshop for you!

Make Do Drink; Knit is the perfect opportunity to learn the basics of knitting, from how to read a pattern to getting to grips with the needles and everything inbetween.  We'll kick off the session off with an Espresso Martini (Or a non-boozy coffee, if you'd prefer!)  while our expert maker tells us a little bit about herself and takes us through how to get started. There'll be step by step instructions, and all everything you need to practice your knit, purl, cast on and cast off, so you can confidently head home with the skills you need to get stuck in! 

Each workshop is 2 hours, so there will be plenty of time to ask our expert questions and learn all the basic stitching techniques!  We are hosting this session at Rise,  Preston's most Instagramable brunch spot! It's pastel perfect decor includes hashtag-able tiling, perfect palm prints and colour popping neon. The workshop sessions are the perfect way to spend an couple of hours with friends, family, or even focusing on some well-deserved 'me' time. As ever the workshop will be kept small, and the casual setting makes it the perfect place to meet new people and have some fun. 

Each ticket includes: A marvellous Espresso Martini or Coffee on arrival  A delicious cake courtesy of Rise Step by step guidance from our expert maker and everything you need to get hands on and get knitting A Knit Kit, including circular knitting needles, aran weight yarn, and a simple knitting pattern for you to tackle when you get home.
