This workshop is a perfect introduction to Dee’s colourwork & design techniques. To celebrate Rowan’s 40th anniversary this year, Dee has created a gorgeous purse design with pretty butterflies in Rowan’s Yorkshire-made Valley Tweed yarn. From the moment arrive you’ll be greeted by beautifully laid-out tables covered with the templates, charts and yarns needed to get started. Dee will guide you through every step of creating this pretty yet practical accessory. Participants will then be able to complete the project at home. Dee will also teach you how to make adorable knitted buttons!
