what we are doing
Come discover the difference between crochet and knitting - and practice basic stitches from both.
Learn about different types of wool - what is double knit vs 4 ply vs worsted weight?
This class will be great for budget saving people, great as practical birthday gifts or baby showers, practical relaxation, creative and fun!
what you will learn
In crochet you will learn how to do a single crochet stitch- the foundation stitch for all the others. When you are comfortable with this one, we can move on to doubles, trebles and more. Learn how to read a pattern from a finished garment, so you can see something you like in a store and make your own version.
For knitting we will cover the starting basics (how to cast on, do standard knitting and cast off). For the more adventurous, or when you are comfortable with those, we can then move into purl, ribbing and even four needles.

Nicola has been crocheting for a number of years, having learnt as a young child. She has made many hats, gloves, scarves, blankets, hacky sacks, hottie covers and toys. Her favourite is making granny squares in a 3d fashion.
Silvia is a knitter supreme also having learnt many years ago. She fundraised for a school camp when she was 12 by knitting hats and slippers for babies. A practical person, Silvia likes knitting useful things like hats, socks and gloves as well as teapot covers and baby slippers. She likes to relax while being productive - thus knitting while watching a movie is the perfect answer!

Chalkle° enables learning for communities in real life. Small affordable classes mean high value for participants, extracting the knowledge and skills otherwise hidden within the community. chalkle° redefines what it means to be a teacher or a learner, helping everyone undertake training in practical, artistic or academic skills while fostering lifelong learning.
Chalkle° expects pre-payment for all classes. If you have not paid you will be placed on the waiting list to allow other chalklers to attend. You will be moved to attending once chalkle° has received confirmation of your payment.
If you RSVP for a class and fail to show up, you will get a "no show". Three no shows means you will be removed from chalkle°. You may request to rejoin after six months.
If you cancel your RSVP:
