Knit A Tea Mouse - One-Day Knitting Retreat | September 15th
Join us for a fun-filled day in beautiful Bellingen, learn new knitting skills, make some new friends and enjoy some delicious food.
This workshop has been designed as a mini-retreat, where you will get to enjoy a day of crafting, socialising and good food, all while learning some new skills.
During the Knit A Tea Mouse workshop you will knit and complete a Tea Mouse, learning skills such as shaping, seaming and professional finishing off techniques. You'll be practising these techniques using beautiful organic cotton yarn.
Beginning in the morning, you'll enjoy a few hours of knitting before breaking for a delicious light lunch provided by Cedar Bar & Kitchen, giving you a chance to chat with the other crafters and enjoy browsing the mini pop-up shop of luxury natural fibre yarns and other goodies. Followed by more knitting and then a scrumptious afternoon tea of scones, brownies and fresh fruit. Gluten-free options are available for both meals, please leave a comment at checkout to let me know that you require gluten free. You will be able to select your preferred tea/coffee on the day.
Absolutely everything is included in the Knit A Tea Mouse Workshop - tools, materials, lunch & afternoon tea - the only thing you need to bring along is yourself!
