Education is at the heart of what we do. Essentially, sharing and learning is crucial for progress and sustainability while continuing to develop the long history of knitting, inspiring generation after generation.
Workshops for 2019/2020.
Di Gilpin has presented two very successful workshops at Comielaw this summer. Although no further workshops are currently planned, enquiries are always welcome should you wish to know when others may be on offer.
The retreat to Spain during the first week of March 2020 may still have some space. Please enquire with the company should you be interested in attending this event.
Di and Sheila are presenting many workshops at the events they are attend during the year. However, there is always room to accommodate a group of students at the Studio should there be sufficient demand. Groups should be a minimum of 4 students paying £75 each for a full day course.
Should you have a group of students looking for some special tuition with Di and Sheila, then please do not hesitate to contact us regarding a bespoke training session for your group.
All training sessions, are held at the Studio at Comielaw, and a Scottish lunch of local specialities is included in the price of each special training session.
We can offer groups a wide range of skills based classes, including colourwork, lace, gansey, as well as how to create your own design. Please contact us if you wish to arrange a group visit to the studio for a class - tea and cake are always included!
We hold a knit club every Thursday at our Studio, from 5pm until 7pm where we chat about designs and try out different knitting techniques. It's great fun and ALL are welcome. Best to contact us first if you'd like to come along just in case it's cancelled at short notice.
