What you'll do

Whether you call yours bed socks or slipper socks, one thing we can agree on is these socks are the kings of comfort.

Join Jacki from the Woolly Badger and knit a cosy pair of chunky bed socks. This 2.5hr workshop is perfect for advanced beginners who fancy learning to make this ultimate gift. This experience is taking place in Bedminster's lovely Creative Space on North Street - a dedicated space for creative workshops just like this one.

You'll discover everything you need to know to knit a simple sock – with lots of time for questions and hands-on help inbetween. You’ll get to grips with stretchy cast-ons, knitting in the round, turning a heel, and using kitchener stitch to close a toe.

The 2.5 hour workshop gives you plenty of time to get stuck into your first sock. You’ll get to take home everything you need to finish your second as the pattern, yarn and needles are all included in the workshop price.

That's not all! Guests will get a whole load of follow-up materials and tutorials to refer back to, with the option of more support over Zoom (a small extra charge will apply for Zoom support).

There are eight spaces available, so you can be sure you’ll get all the help you need. Jacki will be bringing along lots of tea and biscuits for everyone - because tea, knitting and a nice sit down are the best things in life.
