Children's Knitting

Don’t we all remember the first time we picked up yarn and learned to create something? Here are String Thing Studio, we would love to be there at the beginning of your child’s fiber journey! We offer classes specifically for children where they are introduced to the basics of the craft. As they improve, we move them to more advanced projects.  If you would like for your child to have a weekly program have a look at our Afterschool Program.  We also offer class packs of 5 and 10 classes.  Click here for class packs

This class is best suited for children ages 7-12 years old.

Weaving on the Bias

Single strand weaving is a quick and unique method of weaving which can be done on a variety of frame looms.  The look is not warped separately; it is warped as you weave.  There is little to no waste and it is self finishing!  You can make fun plaids with self stripping and some variegated yarns - no math required.

 

Private Lessons

For those who like to have a one on one teaching experience we offer one hour private classes in knitting, crochet and pattern help.

For children we offer half hour classes if that is something you think your child would benefit from.
