Workshop – Knit your own Stag’s Head

No ancestral home should be without one…. suitable for vegetarians!

This two-part workshop will take you step-by-step through the process of creating your own, unique stag’s head to hang on the wall as a centrepiece for your Christmas decorations. Each participant will start with a pre-sewn fabric base. The day session will guide you through knitting the various sections of the stag’s head. The second part evening session will focus on assembling the various pieces to finish your new best friend!

Suitable for knitters who are confident with casting on/off, knit and purl stitches and how to increase and decrease. Full instructions and all materials are included in the price of the workshop.
