    Learn to knit a basket using giant yarn. In this workshop you'll be given a big ball of felted wool and huge needles. Together we'll explore knitting techniques and the steps to creating a striking chunky wool basket. This class is great for both beginners and experienced knitters as it uses a simple garter stitch and seamed design.

    You'll be working with 100% New Zealand wool that is hand-felted into yarn by women artisans in Nepal. Once you get going, this super chunky yarn works up quickly. By the end of the class, you'll have your own basket that's ideal as a planter or for storing towels, toys, and other homeware.


    Light snacks and refreshments will be served and you’ll also receive a 15% off discount at the Poketo shop in the lobby as well as all future workshops. 

    This is a great workshop for team-building and for the whole family. Please read our Workshop FAQ for more info
