$16.99 for a Three-Hour Learn to Knit Workshop ($35 Value)

Beginners spend three hours with an expert instructor during Learn to Knit workshops. The 3–10 pupils in each workshop learn to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off before mastering garter and stockinette stitches with their own circular needles and yarn. Supplies—one skein of yarn and one set of needles—are not included but can be purchased from the shop.

Schedules are updated each month and can be found here.

Tempe Yarn & Fiber

The artisans at Tempe Yarn & Fiber cultivate an educational atmosphere where creativity flourishes amid an inventory of top-shelf yarns, fibers, and fiber-arts equipment. Largely stocked by local suppliers, the 3,000-square-foot studio branches off from an open gathering space into individual classrooms where pupils learn to knit, crochet, spin, weave, and dye fibers. Instructors well-versed in the fiber arts ring in classes that teach skills such as beginning knitting, gradually progressing to more complicated maneuvers such as patching up a hot-air balloon in motion. Teachers also allow students to set their own pace during project help sessions, staying on hand to offer pointers as needed.
