Quotidian Colourwork with Felicity Ford
22 March @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm£70
In this workshop you’ll learn to translate your favourite things into stranded colourwork using the KNITSONIK system. Bring a treasured object or photo from which to develop your creative ideas. You’ll also need your preferred needles for working small-circumference stranded colourwork in the round with fingering weight yarn; 2.5-3.25mm depending on your tension and circular or double-pointed-needles depending on your personal preferences.
To get the most out of this class, knitters must be confident with working small circumference projects in the round and with handling two colours at once. Previous experience with knitting Fair Isle/stranded colourwork is essential to enjoy the full benefits of a Quotidian Colourwork workshop!
Please select ONE inspiration source from which to work during the class; if your inspiration source is a photo, get it printed out ahead of the workshop; working from a smartphone or iPad screen makes it much harder to understand the colours and can be distracting. Please also bring squared notepaper, a ruler, and a plain HB pencil.
