Join Courtney from The Chunky Needle this October 2022 to create your very own chunky-knit blanket at an arm knitting workshop at John Lewis Cheltenham.

Taking place on Thursday 27 October November 2022 from 10.30am, as a twist on traditional knitting, crafty participants will use their arms - rather than needles - to make their very own 30 by 50 inch chunky knit blanket, great for those chilly winter evenings!

With no knitting experience necessary, people aged 10 and above can take part, selecting their own colour of wool from 30 merino shades including crimson, mink and midnight or 18 beautiful acrylics such as light teal, bright pink and mint, to create their unique blanket.

The workshop lasts two hours and costs £75 per person for acrylic or £95 per person for merino wool. Plus, tea, coffee and cake is included within the ticket price. 

What's more, participants will also receive a discount card to use on future workshops, products or wool to knit blankets at home. 

Please note, wool colours are likely to become limited 10 days prior to the workshop.
