Workshop: Professional Finishing Techniques

How a garment is put together can make a huge difference to the overall finished look of it. Just because your garment is hand-made, it doesn’t mean that is how it has to look!

This workshop will look at the techniques needed to help give your garment that professional finish. For example, sewing pieces together, buttonholes and picking up stitches are just a few of the techniques worked during the course. As you will also see throughout the day, it is not just what is done to the pieces of knitting after they are knitted, there are lots of things that can be done along the way that will also help to achieve a more professional look.
The cost of the workshop includes yarn, full tuition and light refreshments (bring your own lunch)
