VALPURI’S KNITTING COLLEGE
Beginners Machine Knitting Course. Learn to knit a pair of Stripy Socks!
I have designed a beginners knitting course that I am going to start running from our studio in Manchester. This will be a first time when this course will take place and I have a special introduction/test run price for this course. I am now seeing how much interest this course will gain and then I will take bookings. For this first course there will be space for 3 people and the places will go to the first booked and paid deposit. I am planning to start the course in February and it will be running on saturdays.
Here is what the course includes:
1 to 1 Induction (2 hours)
This first session you will be learning to cast on, learn to do the tension by hand, knitting, changing colour, changing tension, transferring stitches with a transfer tool, increase and decrease and cast off.
After this you will be able to decide wether you will want to carry on with the rest of the course or not. You can only enrol to the beginners course if you complete the induction, even if you have used a knitting machine before. The induction is a one to one tutorial.
Session 1 and 2 (4 hours with a 30 minute break in the middle) (2 saturdays)
In this course you will learn to knit a pair of socks. You will be using techniques that you were shown at the induction. The first and the second sessions are timed for knitting the socks.
Finishing (3 hours) (1 saturday)
The last session is to show how to finish a pair of socks with the knitting machine by teaching the “hooking on and casting off”-technique. How to thread the ends of the yarns in the knitting by using a latch tool and ironing the socks.
The whole course that includes the materials, lessons in how to knit and finish a garment that you take with you at the end of it costs £145.00.
The deposit in doing the course is £25.00 (induction) which in after you can still decide if you want to do the rest of the course.
This price is for this first time only for the first three people that book in. After the first time that the course has run, the price might go up, in case it requires more time or work. I am also planning on designing more courses and after the beginners course, there will be courses running for making bigger garments such as jumpers.
