Knit a phone case – Monday 13th May @Ben’s Canteen

April 29, 2013 at 16:25 1 comment

Join the lovely, talented Alex and knit your own phone cover at Ben’s Canteen in Clapham.  These cute knitted cases are perfect projects for beginners, or for knitters with a bit more experience to learn new stitches.  Find out what you can do with simple variations of knit and purl stitches!  The finished items are  versatile enough to be used as phone or camera covers or anything else you need to keep snug in your bag.

First of all, pick your fave colours….

Then choose one of our designs, from a simple knit stitch to more fancy rib and moss stitches.  All of these are suitable for beginners, and for more experienced knitters, we can experiment with stitches needing more skill.


Then embellish with vintage buttons and pom poms!


Our tutors will demonstrate how to cast on and  the basic stitches for your phone case.  We will be on hand to help you trouble shoot any problems, and you get to knit while enjoying a glass or two of Ben’s finest wines, yummy food, and meet your crafty neighbours.  Alex is a very talented fine artist who we met during Lambeth Open Studios. When she is not painting, she loves to knit, so we are very pleased to have her join us.


These three-hour workshops costs just £20 and include tuition, examples, inspiration and lots of materials to choose from.  All materials are supplied, and knitting needles will be available to buy if you want to take them home. We go out of our way to make sure you have lots of choice so you can play and experiment with a range of materials that you may not have access to at home.  We ensure our groups don’t get to big, and always have enough tutors to provide one-to-one help as well as group demonstrations.

Please email Gillian at Crafty Pint if you want to reserve a place, or just drop in and join us on the day.
