Join knitwear designer Stephen West and create your very own unique shawl design. Following basic patterns and recipes, you will be guided through producing your own knitted shawl, following your fascinations by adding colour and texture. If you’re adventurous and love making things your own way, this is the perfect space to explore and let your creativity soar. If you prefer to follow patterns, Stephen will also provide several shawl shapes for you to follow. Level: Intermediate to experienced.
Materials not included. What to bring:
Bring a collection of yarns to knit a shawl and needles. If you have circular needles, bring those, but regular straight needles also work fine. 400-600 meters of worsted weight wool is enough to create a small to medium size shawl on a size US 9/4.5mm needle. If you prefer a finer weight fabric, bring some sock weight/fingering weight yarns and a US 5/3.75mm needle.

Film night – Faith Like Potatoes
Frank Rautenbach leads a strong cast as Angus Buchan, a Zambian farmer of Scottish heritage, who leaves his farm in the midst of political unrest and racially charged land reclaims and travels south with his family to start a better life in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. With nothing more than a caravan on a patch of land, and help from his foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggle to settle in a new country. Faced with ever mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Angus quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction. Based on the inspiring true story by Angus Buchan the book was adapted for the big screen by Regardt van den Bergh and weaves together the moving life journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows his faith, unseen until the harvest.
Refreshments including popcorn provided

Based on a true story.
July, 1934. The Western Isles. A small crowd stand on a beach and watch in amazement. Eccentric German scientist Gerhard Zucker tells them he wants to bring the world together. The future is about communication. The future is about connection. The future is… ROCKETS!
Specifically, a Rocket packed full of letters to send from Scarp to Harris. The crowd gasp as he lights the fuse and the rocket lifts up into the sky and then… explodes.
His vision for the bright new future of communication disintegrates into thousands of tiny pieces that fall through the sky like snow. Mission fail. Return to sender. Back to the drawing board Gerhard. He has three days to turn his luck around. Will he make his rockets fly? Will he bring people together?
A fantastically fun new show for everyone aged six and over, Rocket Post is a raucous mix of songs and storytelling. Full of humour, heart and hope for the future, it’s a tale of miscommunication, vaulting ambition and the joyous discoveries that happen when everything goes wrong.
Written and directed by Lewis Hetherington
with collaborators Ailie Cohen, MJ McCarthy and Kane Husbands.
Presented by National Theatre of Scotland.
Suitable for all budding Rocketeers aged 6 and over.
