April can be a hard month to predict. Do we dust the cobwebs off the bikes, leave out the wellies or keep our hobbies indoors so we’re tucked away from those Spring showers!
If you’re looking to get your teeth into something creative, fun and inspiring, why not try a workshop at Emporia Fabric & Craft this April?

Learn to knit a super chunky cowl or scarf in this session with Lotte.
This class is suitable to complete beginners or those who want to move on to the purl stitch as a new technique. The class lasts for two hours and the price includes enough wool to complete the project.
Knitting needles are available to purchase at the shop but if you already own a pair of 10mm needles, feel free to bring them along.

There’s nothing nicer than settling down in the evenings in a pair of comfy pyjamas. But have you ever thought about making your own?
Emporia now offer a class where you can create your own pair of pyjamas from their range of brushed or plain cottons in store.
This quick and easy class is perfect for beginners, so much so that you’ll soon be making more for the rest of the family too!
