Zen Variations Trunk Show
1 October, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The Zen Variations is a collection of sweaters that embraces the idea that knitting is a physical meditation. Each sweater begins in the same way with a top-down, set-in sleeve construction, and then develops with variations on the theme of Zen.
This special Zen Variations trunk show is a chance to see samples of all of the patterns, and talk with the designer, Renée Callahan, about her design process and get advice on how to approach the patterns. Yarns by the Fibre Company, used in the collection will also be available.
Renée Callahan is a knitwear designer and teacher living and endlessly knitting here in East London. Originally from Seattle, where she studied history of art, she came to the UK as an exchange student but fell in love and stayed, changing not only her home town, but also her career when she went back to college to study fashion design with knitwear. She began to knit relatively late, but with the zeal of the newly converted, she found a way to rebuild her life with fibre arts at the centre. She loves to think about knitting construction and to pass the skills on with teaching.
