Knitting & Crochet Workshops/Classes: Scotland 2018

Here is a roundup of some of the workshops and classes taking place across Scotland. Classes are presented in date order below the name of the place providing the class. Click on the links for more information. I searched for classes in the major cities/areas, however, if you would like me to search in an area that hasn’t been included, please let me know.  If you are aware of any other classes, then please let me know in the comments section and I’ll include it in the main post. I have done similar posts for EnglandWales and Ireland.

I have only included classes that are currently scheduled that appear to have spaces available, or ones where you can arrange on an individual basis.  I have also kept in the links of places that have previously had classes but that don’t have any scheduled at the time of search.  I will update the post when I can so if you are interested then keep an eye on it.  All information is correct at time of searching,  but please understand that I am not affiliated with any of the places offering classes, so they may make changes that I am not aware of.  It is therefore best to contact the venue directly to see if there have been any changes to scheduled classes.

  1. I’m really interested in the lace and stranded knitting at the yarn Cake but I’m really nervous around new people due to my mental health issues. I’m desperately trying to teach myself lace but I’m failing miserably at it. X

    1. Hi Lou, have you been to the shop before? It’s a really nice, small space and the staff are really friendly. Might be worth checking out maximum number of people that can attend so you know how many other people would be there? And maybe give the shop a ring or visit to discuss any possible concerns? Or I could put a post out on my Facebook page to see if anyone would be interested in offering you a 1:1 lesson? x

    2. Hi Lou, I just started a 4 week beginners class last night at Yarn Cake. There were 8 of us, all at different stages in our knitting adventure, and Maria, the teacher, was so patient and very good at showing us all what to do. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and I am really looking forward to going again next week. They have an open night on a Thursday where you can buy a cup of tea and cake and sit knitting. Maybe try that to see how you get on? You can leave at any time. If you like it then maybe you would feel more confident about doing the lace course 🙂
