Join extraordinary knitting and crochet queen, Kate Jenkins to create your own decorated knitted scoop of ice cream, just like the sculptures in her exhibition, Kate's Cones.
Let your dessert imagination run wild as Kate provides you with a knitted ‘scoop’ of ice cream and all the beads and yarn you need to embroider your favourite sprinkles, smarties and chocolate syrup.

This fun, lighthearted workshop is perfect to do with friends and you get to take home your very own Ice Cream artwork inspired by the exhibition, Kate’s Cones!
What you will learn:
- Simple beadwork.
- Crochet methods to make your own cherries.
- Yarn embroidery.
- Top tips from knitting and crochet genius, Kate Jenkins.
Kate Jenkins is a knitting genius and one of the most original and innovative artists in the UK. Famous for her unique crocheted food, Kate takes a nostalgic and humorous look at everyday food and recreates them in wool, wit and sequins. From life size bakeries, fishmongers and bagel bars Kate has created the most instagrammable food meets art experiences on the block.
“While my journey has been varied and exciting, one thing never changes,” she says. “Whatever I create, whether it’s a carton of French fries, a tin of sardines or a box of frogs I always include lots of warmth and a dash of wit. Above all, I want my work to make people smile.”
