Open Up Sheffield 2021

Come and visit the Sincerely Louise studio as part of Open Up Sheffield 2021!

We’ll be opening our doors for groups of up to 4 people at a time during May. You can see how we run our knitting brand and have a chat with Louise, in our studio in the historic Harland Works. Each visitor will receive a free copy of Sincerely Louise’s book, The Knitter’s Annual, and knitting kits and patterns will be available to buy during your visit.

You can visit the studio at the following times by prior arrangement only - Tuesdays - 11am-4pm, Thursdays - 11am-4pm or Saturdays - 11am-5pm. 

Please contact Amala at to arrange your visit.

Our address is at 74 Harland Works, John Street, S2 4QU.

The following COVID precautions will be in place:

  • Face masks must be worn, unless you are exempt
  • Hand sanitiser is available when you enter and leave the building
  • Windows in the studio will be open 
  • Groups of a maximum of 4 people can visit the studio at one time

Toilets: There are toilet facilities available in the John Street Cafe, on the ground floor of Harland Works. The cafe is open from 8am-4pm on weekdays -

Parking: Street parking is available on John Street with the first 20 minutes free, and in the surrounding area.

Unfortunately our studio is not fully accessible, as it is up two flights of stairs at the top of the building. We would love to welcome as many visitors as we can, but at the moment this is not possible due to the nature of the building.

Here’s a bit about the brand - Sincerely Louise is an independent, award winning, knitting brand, specialising in taxidermy inspired knitting patterns, knitting kits and books. Since launching the brand in 2014, Louise Walker has been creating fun and modern designs from unicorn heads to giant tiger rugs. Sincerely Louise have had three books published, the most recent one being a learn-to-knit book called First Time Knits. Since learning to knit, 10 years ago, Louise has been passionate about craft and encouraging others to start knitting. Knitting can sometimes be seen as old-fashioned, but Louise loves taking the medium and creating something contemporary with a ball of yarn and some knitting needles, which has led to collaborations with Innocent Smoothies and the V&A among others.
