Learning, pizza and beer
Come along and make the most of our best local food and drink, and learn something at the same time!
A monthly series of quick lessons, great company, pizza and beer (or wine, if you rather).
Each session includes:
All you can eat Buster's Woodfired pizza and snacks
Parrotdog beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks
A lesson or chance to progress your knitting in some way
Every session runs 7pm - 9pm on a Wednesday evening, at the shop:
Upstairs, 68-84 Kingsford Smith Street, Lyall Bay
Cancellations accepted and full refunds offered up to one week ahead of the scheduled session, after that no refund will be offered. However you may pass on your spot for the same value (or gift it!) if you are unable to make it. Multi passes are available, and we will be in touch to confirm which sessions you wish to attend. Numbers are strictly limited so you must book in order to attend.
