Quotidian Colourwork with Felicity Ford

26 April @ 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.

Skill level

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!

Homework

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.

About the Teacher

Felicity Ford (AKA Felix) is a knitter, podcaster, soundartist..

She has been combining textiles with sounds in her work since 2006.

Her straightforward approach to creative knitting is underpinned by a philosophy for appreciating and paying attention to daily life – a theme developed through her ongoing work with sounds.

She has published a number of books on the theme of designing your own stranded colourwork based on everyday objects and places. Taken together, this body of work has become a critical resource for any knitter with an interest in colourwork design.
