On a grey, wet Monday lunchtime some of our more hardy readers braved the weather to attend Brompton library’s first Knit and Natter course.
This is the first time we’ve run more than a one-off taster session on any subject (apart from Computing for Beginners on Saturday mornings). Our Knit and Natter course lasts for 8 weeks and this was the introduction. Michelle, the tutor from Westminster Adult Education Services, came prepared with wool and needles if necessary but our learners had jumped the gun and came with their own lovely wool – including bright red, black and some sparkly, purple wool that looked like tinsel! At their first session they went away with something they could wear, a beautiful, rose-shaped corsage.
There are still places available for this so if you’re free on Mondays from 12 – 2pm this is a great way to spend the time – in good company, learning something new (or refreshing old skills) and with something to take away to show for it.
We are hoping to host more events with WAES and make Brompton into more of a place for people to meet up, learn new things and maybe make new friends so watch this space (and the next events brochure)!
