Što ćete raditi

An Almaborealis knit workshop provides guests with the tools and knowledge to experience becoming a knitwear designer for the day. Visitors will be guided step-by-step through the design process of a knitted accessory of their choice; a scarf, snood or a beanie.
Colour, pattern and texture are all discussed and used as part of the design process. My guests will choose from a variety of yarn, including lambswool, merino, and other natural fibres. Chosen designs will come to life through the magic of a hand operated knitting machine. Guests will be introduced and guided through every step of operating a knitting machine to guarantee a successful wooly outcome.
The process from an initial idea through to a final warming and hand knitted item is fascinating - and what better souvenir to take home than a memorable experience and the product of your own creative process!

Please note, if booking for two people, I will allow an extra hour (four hours in total for the session) to complete projects, and if booking for three, I will allow two extra hours (five hours in total for the session), to ensure each participant walks away happy with their finished fantabulous creations! :)
Other things to note
Under 6-year-olds will share the experience with their carer so they join free of charge! If booking for two people, gain extra hour (4hrs total), for three, gain two extra hours (5hrs total).

I am a knitwear designer with a BA (Hons) and MA in knitwear from Heriot-Watt University. I currently lecture at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design. Originally I come from Finland, so you can be assured that knitting runs tickety-boo in my veins (I knitted my first pair of mittens age 6 and crocheted at 5, so I know my knit n purl!).
I’m particularly interested in a more sustainable and balanced way of producing clothing. I believe making your own is brilliant fun, therapeutic and enormously satisfying, and I wish to share this with others.

Gdje ćete biti

My guests are welcomed to my studio located in the heart of Leith, by the popular area of the Shore, with attractive waterside streets full of fun cafes and bars. A short bus ride from Princess street or a curious stroll down Leith Walk, with lots of second hand and independent stores.

Such a unique experience! My mother and I had the pleasure of expanding our machine knitting skills with the keen guidance of our lovely host, Maija. Prior to attending the session I had asked if Maija was up for tailoring the session, since we already had experience with machine knitting. She exceeded all my expectations and was absolutely brilliant providing the right amount of support for us to get comfortable and play about with different knitting techniques. I absolutely recommend loosing track of time in Maija’s studio!

This was truly a one-of-a-kind experience that we will forever remember and tell all of our friends and family about. Maija made us feel welcome with tea and treats, while sharing her knowledge and personal stories. She took extra time to help us create the pattern we wanted and find the perfect colors. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to experience something unique in Scotland and walk away with a wooly project you made yourself. I cannot wait to show off my scarf with my sweaters this winter.

This experience exceeded our expectations. Maija was lovely and generous of her time, knowledge and supplies. My daughter and I made amazing scarves that were so unique. I was also impressed because she created a time slot just for us as we couldn’t attend the other ones listed. I highly recommend!

Excellent workshop! The best I've done on Airbnb so far! Maija is an amazing artist and an expert knitter. Her studio is snug, unique and really close to Edinburgh centre. Maija was patient, full of suggestions and tons of patience. Under her guidance, I created one of the coolest scarfs ever!!

Absolutely fantastic experience! It was the perfect way to spend our first day in Edinburgh since we were super jet lagged. Very fun, interactive, but restful and relaxing. Maija was a real pro and even when we had some technical difficulties she figured it out and got us back on track! If my husband and I can walk away with beautiful scarves, anyone can!
