Event description

Description

Would you love to be able to knit little picture motifs? If you can cast on, knit, purl and cast off on a pair of straight single pointed needles, this could be the workshop for you! You will learn how to create adorable, neat pictures using the Intarsia technique.

You will start by knitting a simple colour block pattern from a chart. Once you understand the technique and can work your colour changes neatly, you will have the opportunity to try some little picture motifs. Lots of help and guidance will be given to help you to read the picture knit charted instructions.

This workshop will only have a maximum of 6 people to ensure you get lots of help and advice. Your place is secure once you have paid.

This small and friendly workshop is held at a lovely textile studio/shop in the historic Oxfordshire blanket town, Witney. Knitting needles and wool will be available for you to use during the workshop. Tea, coffee and homemade cake are also included.

The aim of this workshop is for you to leave having understood and explored a new knitting technique and to go home with some sweet little picture knit swatches.

This workshop is run by well known knitwear designer, Linda Whaley. Linda runs a variety of workshops for all levels, in Oxfordshire, England.

During her career as a knitwear designer, Linda Whaley has freelanced for designer labels, high street stores and UK spinners.
