Knitting & Crochet Workshops/Classes: Wales 2017

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 will update this when new classes are scheduled 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.
