Knitting Classes at the Mary Rose Museum

I’m going to be teaching a range of knitting and textile classes at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth in February and March 2011.

If you’re in the Portsmouth area, you can learn to knit (or refresh your skills) with me on either February or March 5th (or both if you’re keen!)

There are only 10 places on each course, so if you’d like to book one for you or somebody else, please do get in touch with Fiona, pronto, as detailed above.

The classes are running as part of the education programme that goes alongside their latest exhibition The Tudors Courtly Couture Collection. If you’re a fan of The Tudors tv series, this is a really great opportunity to see the original costumes up close. I went to see the costumes when they arrived at the museum and the detailing even on the costumes is amazing. They really were the Kings of Bling.

It is all in aid of the Mary Rose 500 appeal which raises money for the new Mary Rose Museum which will house King Henry VIII’s flagship at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

There will also be two more classes on 12th February and 26th March, where I will be teaching how to make knitted bouquets and buttonholes for a Winter Wedding, and the Scroggers from Glee, respectively (scroggers were Tudor leg or arm warmers).

If you’d like to book up, please do get in touch with Fiona Harvey on 02392 750521 or email her at f.harvey[at]maryrose.org
