We’re not sure when and we can’t be sure who started it, but somewhere along the line, knitting has become the quirky girl’s pastime du jour. As well as the occasional hip indie girl you see knitting on the train, there’s a pack of crafty stars getting in on the needle action too, including Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz and Madonna. If you’re feeling out of the loop, then we’re happy to show you how.

After over two hours of knitting and knattering, you’ll feel like a pro; you’ll have learned all the basics including knit and purl stitch, how to cast on and cast off, stocking stitch and garter stitch. Keep your new-found skills topped up at home using your take away kit of bamboo knitting needles (lightweight, so great for beginners!), yarn and a ‘how to’ guide.

Level: Beginners
Duration: 2 – 2.5 hours
Cost: £32.50 (includes bamboo knitting needles, yarn and how2guide to keep knitting at home). Bamboo needles put less strain on your hands,

Embroidery has come a long way since Jane Austin’s heroines would sit and sew in the drawing room – we’ve brought the pastime back into the 21st Century with our own modern take on the original. Learn five popular stitches in your design, including daisy stitch, back stitch, satin stitch, straight stitch and the French knot. You’ll be able to choose a design to embroider yourself and once you’ve mastered the skill, you can try napkins, sheets, pillowcases… In fact, there won’t be a soft furnishing in your house left unadorned!

This workshop works really well in conjunction with Beginners Patchwork.

Level: Beginners
Duration: 2 hours
Cost: £25.00 includes use of all materials, wooden loop and “how2guide”

Pro-knitters needn’t be restricted to needles alone. From across the pond comes a refreshing change of scenery for your fingertips; loom knitting. Big news in the States and in Latin America, the alternative is an easy-peasy one to pick up and difficult to drop a stitch too. The knitting creates a double sided backing, meaning you’ll successfully manage a tricky stitch in one handy step. Busy girls can loom on the go with a lightweight transportable loom and swiftly produce scarves, blankets and the like. Also, you can say goodbye to curling ends, because such nightmares don’t occur with this technique. A special workshop – if we do say so ourselves – where you’ll learn a technique only available at Tea & Crafting. Perfect for creating a host of wonderful items, especially if you’ve got a friend’s birthday loom-ing.

Level: All Levels
Duration: 2 hours
Cost: £32.50 includes a wooden loom, hook and yarn.

Duration: 2 hours
Time: 7pm to 9pm
Date: 14th July 2011
Cost: £32.50 includes a loom that you keep, hook and yarn.

There’s nothing like a patchwork quilt to bring back fond memories of childhood and in this workshop you can create something that will end up as someone else’s fond memories one day. Learn the fundamentals, including cutting fabrics, measuring seams and sewing the items together. Wadding can be added to make a quilt that will look fetching draped over any bed linen.

For a funky personal touch, bring some clothes that you’ve been meaning to recycle and you can add them to the materials that we provide. We recommend the beginners embroidery workshop to compliment the patchwork workshop – embroidered designs on patchwork always looks great.
