Don’t we all remember
the first time we picked up yarn and knitting needles and began to create something? Here at String Thing Studio, we would love to be there at the beginning of your child’s fiber journey! In this 2 hour introductory kid friendly class we introduce them to the basics of the craft. At the end of this class, if your child likes it and wants to continue, there are additional lessons that can be given to build on these skills. If you would like for your child to have a weekly program take a look at our Afterschool Program. We also offer class packs of 5 and 10 classes.
This class is best suited for children ages 7-12 years old.
