Knitting & Crochet Workshops/Classes: Wales 2018

Following my similar posts for England, Ireland and Scotland, here is a roundup of some of the classes and workshops taking place across Wales for the rest of the year.  As with the other posts, 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 links for places that have previously had classes but don’t have any at time of update search. I will try to 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.

I’ve separated my search into the 4 main areas in Wales (hope I haven’t made any mistakes. Geography is really not my strong point!).  Apologies if I’ve missed any classes, but if you know of any that I have missed, then please let me know and I’ll amend the main post.
