Jazz up your accessories cupboard with your very own handmade woolies. We will learn to knit and get the basics down so you can be sporting your own scarf, hat and gloves combo in no time! All materials are provided, come along for some fun.

This event will be half social chats with a bunch of like minded queer people and half fun, educational and interactive workshop.

All workshops are taught by queers, for queers.

What will we cover?

In this hands-on workshop we’ll cover everything needed for beginners’ knitting:

  • casting on (getting started)
  • knitting
  • purling
  • casting off (finishing your knitting).

We’ll work together and focus on casting on and the ‘knit’ stitch.
There will also be take home resources to practice with and solidify
anything that you didn’t quite pick up during the class. We’ll also have
a quick look at how to choose needles and wool that work together, when
you might choose to use your different stitches and how to read
knitting patterns so you won’t be stuck knitting scarves for the rest of

    Who will be teaching? 

    Lucie Bradley is a scientist, communicator and multipotentialite. She was just a little girl when she was first taught to knit by her grandmother (who was also kind enough to cast on, cast off and pick up all the dropped stitches for her) but later it was her mum and the internet that gave her a refresher knitting class. She practised her skills knitting Christmas stockings whilst on the bus to and from work and has since added a few more things to the list of knits.
