Knitting was invented to turn the tumbling balls of yarn that littered the badlands habitat of early man into a soft, warm blanket for man's first pet rock. Teach your kids to create something cozy with today's deal: for $40 you get two two-hour workshops (an $80 value) at The Handwork Studio in Narberth.
During each of its many weekly classes, The Handwork Studio's staff of teachers and professional artists give creative kids a fun, hands-on introduction to expressing themselves through machine sewing, fashion, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, and needle felting. Workshops such as A Snip-It of Sewing, A Touch of Handwork, A Feel for Fashion, or A Pinch of Knitting Needle Fencing combine a smaller class size with a curriculum that accommodates children of all ages, except Faulknerian man-children with nonlinear senses of time. Petite purlers can also get a head-start on the holidays with a themed Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day workshop, which supply all the tools, materials, and instruction necessary to create handmade decorations, meet new friends, and build foolproof Cupid traps. All classes must be used within four months of the Groupon.
