£40 to include a 100gm ball of British DK sock wool. Please bring 3.5dpns, ( or purchase on day with a 10% discount), a tapestry needle and scissors plus a packed lunch. Light refreshments provided.

Participants will be taught how to work in the round on dpns, the anatomy of a sock (cuff, heel flap, heel turn, gusset, toe and foot) as well as other useful techniques. The aim is to produce a small sample sock which will enable each student to learn all the techniques during the course of the day. They can then progress to starting socks for themselves
