Event description
Experimental knitting workshop using free knitting techniques to explore colour.

About this event

Workshop content: -

Knitting the Rainbow is an experimental knitting workshop using simple techniques to explore colour:-

  • Using colour to express mood and atmosphere.
  • Knitting stripes and blocks of colour.
  • Creating a knitted patchwork.

The session includes a worksheet, knitting demonstrations, and PowerPoint presentation (covering basic colour theory, plus graduation dyeing techniques using Procion MX Cold Water dyes), plus samples to inspire further exploration after the session.

Aimed at anyone with an interest in textiles and soft sculpture, the workshop examines the artistic potential of knitting. The emphasis is on creating experimental samples, rather than a finished piece, although techniques can be adapted to create a garment, accessory or household object.

What attendees will need: -

  • Knitting needles or crochet hooks.
  • Yarns, any will do, but bright colours if you have them. It would also be useful if you have one or two yarns, which you dislike for my knitting challenge!
  • Several small stitch holders or safety pins.
  • Basic sewing kit, scissors, large eyed needles and embroidery threads.
  • Internet access, with a microphone and webcam. Please only book if you are able to attend in real time.
