Jerwood Centre

In partnership with Sam Read Bookseller, Grasmere.

Why not nurture your creative spirit at one of our workshops? An opportunity to slow down, immerse yourself in a traditional craft, learn a new skill and create something beautiful. All of our workshops include the materials that you will need for the day, as well as light refreshments.

Esther Rutter spent a year writing and knitting her way round the British Isles to learn about the country’s long-held fascination with all things woolly. In this special workshop she will take you on a journey through her new book, This Golden Fleece, invite you to examine historic knitted items from our collection, and then guide you through beginning your own stranded colourwork patterns, inspired by the Dales knitters and the landscape of Cumbria. All knitting materials included. Please note that participants must be able to knit and purl.

Cost: £20. This workshop must be booked in advance.

This workshop is now sold out.
