Event description

Description

THE COURSE
Taking inspiration from nature, learn how to interpret leaves and flowers into design motifs for hand knitting. After a tour of Sculpture by the Lakes, you will graph out your design and then use Sasha’s intarsia technique to knit a swatch. This will then be developed using applications such as repeats, half drops, alternative colour ways and use of other yarns and textures. Expand your knowledge and understanding of hand knit design and processes for future independent projects.
