Knitting Essential Techniques

These resources give you the necessary information on how to knit. Brought to ...

Thank you for an inspiring evening. Really nice to meet some interesting artistic people. I would love to meet up monthly and discuss our progress, get inspired and drink coffee!

Here is my finished film of which I discussed.


See you all soon

I am a social person, but I never did such thing. Now I feel to do something , so that I can make a little change in this world.

Hi There

The quickest a probably cheapest way to create a website these days would be to use wordpress.

Most hosting companies now offer wordpress installation as part of their entry level packages, eg. fasthosts or godaddy. These often come with a one button click setup function.

Wordpress is a free but powerful tool and can allow non-techy people set up functional and good looking websites quickly. It has an easy-ish admin interface and a very active user community so if you have an questions on how to do something, just google it.

What sort of thing are you after? There is a new studio opened in Harwich, called Old Bank Studios and the owner is an interior designer specialising in teaching textile work, I'll ask her if she offers anything along this line at her studio. Will post back when I find out!

I use Webplus x6 from Serif software - similar in use to Dreamweaver I am told but at around £40..... wayyyyy cheaper.
If you are a student, I believe you can get discount on some Serif software too.
There is also a free downloadable starter version to give you a feel for it before you buy at www.serif.com


I'd love to join in with this - how, where, when etc please?


I used to use Dreamweaver years ago and haven't touched it since. I remember it being really easy to use.

What do you want to site for?

If you want a simple site for now I always recommend tumblr: www.tumblr.com and wordpress: https://wordpress.com/

Otherwise a know a few people that use wix http://www.wix.com/

I would recommend contacting the lovely chaps at Colchester Digital. They are a huge network of local digital savvy souls who could recommend a programme. They meet on different dates throughout the month. Find out more here: http://www.colchesterdigital.co.uk/

I like the logo however I think it should have colour, after all gardening is about the soil and the green shoots of growth and also the abundant colours of veg and plants.

Maybe the skinny jeans could have been done like 2 carrots.

Just my thoughts on it.

Hi Dale,

Same as above, cool modern logo, the thing I noticed was it actually looks more like a clothing brand logo, you may need to add more of a gardening finish to it maybe. Its a personal opinion, and was the thing I noticed.

Hope this helped

May have some ideas if you'd like some help if you decide to change it, my
e-mail is on my profile if you wish to contact me.
