Crafting for Boys: Knit your own bow tie!

We've been hunting high and low to find you chaps another fellow that would be proficient in crafting so we could share with you our male counterparts the craft making lurve!

Finally after much searching we have found the talented Ben who will be running our next mini workshop at our 4th Birthday Craft Night on the 8th of March at the Rose & Crown Pub.
Learn to knit your very own Bow tie...
AND we totally expect you to wear it, it is after all our birthday so we want you looking smart and dapper!!!

"Originally the neckwear of Croatian mercenaries, the bow-tie has become a staple of geek couture. In this workshop we'll be making classic knit bow-ties that have not a hint of Colonel Sanders about them.  Think Matt Smith, not fried chicken. 
Ben will teach you basic knitting technique and mattress stitch. If you feel ready for it we'll also cover how to knit tweed  and how to design and knit your own fair-isle motifs. Materials, and instructions on how to actually tie a bow tie, provided. "

Workshop begins at 8pm
£15 per person
