Societies | Knit Like Your Nana

Ever wanted to try out a retro activity? How about learning a new skill? Or do you want to just develop your knitting and crochet abilities? Then you should come to ‘Knit Like Your Nana’s weekly sessions, every Tuesday in The Hubs! 

Don’t worry about your ability, we encourage anyone who wants to come along to come. We have sessions planned for amateurs, intermediates, professional and expert knitters and crocheters! Committee members and other experienced knitters will be there to help you when you need it so just give us a shout!

Some activities we have planned for the year include:
- Learning to knit
- Themed and normal socials
- Day events and trips
- Charity events
- And most of all having fun!

The Society was founded in November 2015  and won the Best New Society 2016 award, then the Most Developed Society 2017 award We are one of the most active Societies in the Students' Union. One of the events we regularly take part in is the ‘100 hats for 100 babies’ where last year we knitted 304 hats for Jessops Wing. More recently, we knitted poppies to raise money for the Royal British Legion and raised over £200! 

If you would like to find out more or just have a chat with one of our committee members, please contact us via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email. We are looking forward to seeing you!
