Dear Pru knitting workshops were hosted at Sunspun this September. The boutique yarn store in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs was filled with knitters learning to knit brioche, socks and Fair Isle- one class even included steeking!

Knitting is a form of craftivism, a gentle rebellion against consumerism. Pru Raymond’s Knitting for Zero Waste Living series at Charles Sturt’s 19 on Green centre was designed to empower knitters to make sustainable choices, and opt out of a throwaway lifestyle.
Throughout July I’m teaching a series of Knitting Workshops with a Sustainability focus at 19 on Green, a Community Centre in the City of Charles Sturt
Learning a new thing (like knitting) can be daunting… just start somewhere… but be prepared to adopt some tools and techniques along the way to keep going, along with a healthy dose of self compassion.
