Knitting & Crochet Workshops/Classes: England 2017

Here is a summary of some of the knitting and crochet workshops and classes taking place across England. I have searched and categorised into the main areas in England.  I appreciate I will probably have missed tons of places but including them all would have been outwith the scope of the post and there is only so much time I can spend searching!  If anyone knows of any additional workshops or classes, please comment below.  I have done similar posts for Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

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 moment.  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.
