We offer a variety of workshops at Ripping Yarns so you can learn new skills and meet fellow crafters. They are held in our workroom which is part of the shop in Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

Each class is kept to a maximum of 6 so you can get the most out of the class and the workshop tutor.

You will also receive a 10% discount on any purchases made on the day of your workshop.

If you would like to book a place on any of the workshops please call Angela on 01287 623154, email or call in to the shop.
