An Almaborealis knit workshop provides guests with the tools and knowledge to experience becoming a knitwear designer for the day. Visitors will be guided step-by-step through the design process of a knitted accessory of their choice; a scarf, snood or a beanie. Colour, pattern and texture are all discussed and used as part of the design process. My guests will choose from a variety of yarn, including lambswool, merino, and other natural fibres. Chosen designs will come to life through the magic of a hand operated knitting machine. Guests will be introduced and guided through every step of operating a knitting machine to guarantee a successful wooly outcome. The process from an initial idea through to a final warming and hand knitted item is fascinating - and what better souvenir to take home than a memorable experience and the product of your own creative process! Please note, if booking for two people, I will allow an extra hour (four hours in total for the session) to complete projects, and if booking for three, I will allow two extra hours (five hours in total for the session), to ensure each participant walks away happy with their finished fantabulous creations! :)
I am a knitwear designer with a BA (Hons) and MA in knitwear from Heriot-Watt University. I currently lecture at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design. Originally I come from Finland, so you can be assured that knitting runs tickety-boo in my veins (I knitted my first pair of mittens age 6 and crocheted at 5, so I know my knit n purl!). I’m particularly interested in a more sustainable and balanced way of producing clothing. I believe making your own is brilliant fun, therapeutic and enormously satisfying, and I wish to share this with others.
Tea/coffee/biscuits to keep you knitting, and recommendations for great places to eat in the area.

My guests are welcomed to my studio located in the heart of Leith, by the popular area of the Shore, with attractive waterside streets full of fun cafes and bars. A short bus ride from Princess street or a curious stroll down Leith Walk, with lots of second hand and independent stores.
