Join us for a day to learn the classic knitting technique of Fair Isle. Expert tutor Monica Russel will enable you to become confident at changing colours, getting the correct tension, reading charts, working patterns on straight and circular needles, and she will give you ideas of how to incorporate Fair Isle patterns into garments, scarves, snoods and hats. This is a fun workshop where you will meet like-minded people.
