If you are interested in learning to knit, crochet, or sew, or if you already know how to do it and you would like to meet other people and craft socially come on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month to Swansea Hackspace!
The idea is to create a friendly and inclusive place for everyone interested in crafts to nurture their creativity! we hope that with enough interest we can organize yarn-bombing activities around the city!
You can buy fairly cheap material from Swansea Market to start with, and we have a small selection of material in stock on the day if you if you don't have any yourself. If you are looking to learn try to choose bright coloured thick yarn (acrylic is perfect to learn on) and large knitting needles or crochet hooks! If you are already a knitter or a crocheter bring your project with you for everyone to admire and get inspired!
