Knitting & Crochet Classes and Workshops

At Folklore Yarns, we have a passion for knitting and crochet and we are on a mission to share the love of our craft with those who are keen to learn. Whether you're new to knitting or crochet and want a hands-on approach to learn the basics, or if you're a skilled crafter who wants to learn more challenging patterns, we have a class available and we welcome you to come along!

Knitting & Crochet Classes and Workshops 

You’ll get to meet a fantastic group of like minded crafters and explore our range of different yarns, threads and tweeds that we have available in store. We will be on hand to provide guidance and support as you create your very own handmade product.

All the upcoming classes and workshops are held here at Folklore Yarn + Coffee, Belfast. All classes are limited to 8 places to allow for a comfortable learning environment, and take place upstairs in the shop.

Knitting Classes for Beginners

No matter what your current level of knitting skill is, we welcome you into Folklore Yarns to learn a new skill and develop your creative talents. In our knitting class for beginners, we will go over the basic of knitting, including;

How to cast on and off

How to knit and purl

How to pick up dropped stitches

Because knitting is such a practical skill, we find that a hands on approach in our face-to-face sessions is the best way to learn the craft. We are there in real time to provide advice and guide you as you get to grips with it.

Knitting Classes for Improver and Intermediate Knitters

If you consider yourself to be a competent knitter, you may want to join one of our improver and intermediate knitter classes. These sessions are great for challenging your skills and learning how to complete more complex patterns.
Learn from an expert knitter to create more challenging projects such as full sized garments, baby clothes and intricate designs. In the classes, we aim to push your knitting ability and share in the expertise of our craft. You’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish with a little guidance and support.

Booking a knitting class for someone else?

Do you know someone who would enjoy attending a knitting class but are you unsure if they would have the time in their busy schedule to join? If so, why not treat a special someone to a Folklore and Yarn Gift Card.
With a gift card, the recipient has the choice to book themselves in for an upcoming knitting class or alternatively treat themselves to the fantastic range of knitting equipment that we have available. The gift cards are available for both in-store and online purchases.

Knit and Natter Fridays
10.30am - 12.30pm

At Folklore Yarns, we are more than just a shop that sells yarns, we are a community of knitters and crocheters and keen to share with others the love of our craft.

The Knit and Natter Fridays are not a workshop or class for those wanting to learn how to knit, but rather a social event where everyone can come together and learn from one another if they so wish.

Visitors can sit back and relax with a cup of our deliciously roasted coffee and treat themselves to one of locally sourced baked goods. You can also browse our fantastic range of yarns, tweeds and knitting accessories.
