I am an artist, knitter and creative. I've been making my own clothes since I was a teenager and I learned how to knit from my grandma. I studied at Central Saint Martins and completed a machine-knitting course, but hand knitting is what I love doing most. I like to be creative, self-sufficient, and make unique pieces that no one else has.

Where you'll be

We'll meet and spend time in an art centre. The Centre hosts classical and contemporary music concerts, theatre performances, film screenings and art exhibitions, and it is one of my favourite places in London.

The nearest tube stations are Barbican (5 mins away), Moorgate (5 mins away) and Old Street (7mins).

Great activity for Valentine's Day weekend with my husband. I was terrible at knitting but Ania was patient, kind and, most importantly, positive with me throughout the whole experience! We had a great time. Thanks, Ania x

What a great experience! Ania was amazing, patient and made time for us during the week as me and my friends can't do Sundays. It was great and we loved it!

The class was great; I never managed to knit when my mother explained it to me but Ania showed us in a way that I could manage. I have been knitting since the class. I want to make lots of scarfs now

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the experience with Ania. We met at the Barbican, and along with another two people doing the experience as well, learnt how to knit and made a start to a scarf over two hours. Ania is a great teacher, and was kind, positive and nice to spend time with. We really enjoyed and would recommend!
