KNITTING CLASSES NEAR YOU?

Join Us At Gartmore House For Our Knitting Classes

available dates :

January - November 2022

January - November 2023

“Trying to find the best knitting classes near me was a daunting task until I found Gartmore House, they took care of everything.”

About The Course

Knitting and crochet are some of the world’s most popular crafts.


It’s not uncommon to see people knitting away on the train or in a café, stitching up a storm and bringing fabulous patterns to life. But for us, all the magic in our crochet and knitting classes takes place in the comfort of our beautiful Oak Room, a cosy home from home!

Life can get in the way of your crafting goals and when your WIP pile is growing, it’s time to get away from it all. A 5-night holiday at Gartmore will allow you the time and space to really focus on your craft and let go of all the stresses of everyday life as you stitch to your heat’s content. These crochet and knitting classes are a relaxed, informal affair, allowing you to stitch at your own pace no matter what you’re working on.

The best knitting classes might just be the ones you can take while on holiday!
Join expert Knitting for All teacher and designer Samira Hill for a knitting and crochet holiday at Gartmore House. Whether you’re a complete novice or an experienced yarnie, Samira will be on hand to provide tuition throughout the week and a number of knitting or crochet workshops to sate any creative appetite! You don’t even have to have any experience either! You’ll be hooked as you learn new techniques and brush up on some old ones.

If you prefer to bring along your works in progress and long forgotten unfinished objects then that’s not a problem! Samira is happy to offer any help and advice you may need throughout the week. So, settle in and get ready to for a week’s worth of knitting and crochet fun.
