Join others to knit together.
These monthly workshops are relaxed, friendly and creative. Each month we take a look at something new and knitting-related together, have a go at some knitting ourselves and share what we've created.We always have something lined up for you to have a go at but you're welcome to bring along your own knitting project if you'd rather get on with that. New or first time knitters are very welcome too - we can match you up with an experienced knitter to get you started - what better way to learn?
This month we'll be taking a closer look at some of the oldest shoes in our collection and knitting some fancy slippers for you to take away and wear.
Check out previous Close Knit on our Close Knit Manchester blog.
The session takes place at our Gallery of Costume, Platt Hall in Rusholme. You can get a 42, 43, 142 or 143 bus from Piccadilly Bus Station in the city centre. Get off just after you pass Hardy's Well pub at the end of the 'Curry Mile'.
The session is free but you may be tempted to treat yourself to a cuppa from our lovely cafe.
Close Knit takes place on the last Saturday of each month. Free, no need to book. All welcome.
