Brioche knitting creates a cushiony, reversible fabric that is actually easier to knit if you use 2 colours! Double your fun during this 3+ hour experience. You'll learn how easy it is to knit a 2-colour brioche stitch. You'll learn by knitting a brioche sample piece on a pair of double-pointed needles. We'll share with you our secrets to making your own loaf of brioche bread. And - to inspire you to create your own brioche, you'll leave with our Knit Pickers Brioche Cowl pattern, 2 skeins of Briggs and Little wool in your choice of colours, and our very own family recipe for buttery herb and parmesan brioche bread, along with an "Activate Our Island" card. Following the 2-hour workshop, you'll head on up to Cavendish Corner and enjoy a delicious burger served on a brioche bun and your choice of non-alcoholic beverage at The Lost Anchor. After lunch, be sure to visit the North Shore Surf Company where your "Activate Our Island" card entitles you to 20% off any regular priced merchandise (excluding paddleboards). "Buttery Brioche - Double the Fun" is offered every Tuesday from 10:15 am - 12:15 pm (plus time for lunch and shopping) from June 2nd to October 6th, 2020. Space is limited - advance registration is required to reserve your spot.
Have your own double-pointed needles? Bring them along! If not - we have, available to purchase, a lovely selection of birch needles, handcrafted in Atlantic Canada.
**Note: Basic knitting skills (how to knit and purl stitches) are required.
