Hi, I’m Amanda!

Hi, I’m Amanda!

As an expert and passionate knitter with advanced adult teaching qualifications,  I’m looking forward to working with you as you develop your knitting skills from beginner to intermediate or accomplished level.

I have advanced skills and qualifications in teaching adults, and teens having worked as a university and college lecturer for 15 years, teaching in health and social care and midwifery; my other great passion.

All of these aspects together with the fact that I have been knitting since the age of 4 and am confident to call myself a professional knitter, enable me to understand your learning needs and to plan, structured and exciting knitting progress for you.

"I had wanted to learn for some time and find Amanda’s class welcoming. Amanda herself is lovely, very patient, and down to earth which makes it a relaxed and fun learning environment we all progress at our own pace and Amanda also provides advice via our WhatsApp group for at-home knitting queries which is great. Would definitely recommend."


I decided to attend the knitting classes because I wanted to brush up on my skills and learn new ones. The venue is close to home which was a bonus. Amanda creates a very sociable and friendly environment and manages a wide range of expertise from absolute beginner to more accomplished with complete ease. It is always a fun evening, lots of laughs and we are even planning some trips out together as a group.
