Yarn Mixology: colourwork knitting unbound
20 October, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm£110
The 2-part class takes place on Sundays 20th and 27th October.
Ever wished you had the confidence to step away from your usual colours, or felt excited and inspired by a surprisingly different combination in someone else’s project? Yarn Mixology is a new 2 part course by Liz Baltesz, designed to inspire and help you discover new approaches to colours and patterns in your knitting, through experimenting and developing your own palette of yarns.
During this 2-part class you will learn to:
- master stranded colourwork techniques
- keep your yarns out of a tangle in multi-colour projects
- speed swatch to test new colour combinations
- chart your own patterns
- build your own colour palette
The price of this class includes your own personal colour palette of 10 balls of Jamieson and Smith 2ply Jumper Weight shetland wool, which you will create during the course.
About the teacher
Liz Baltesz has been knitting for over 50 years. She loves playing with colour and is fascinated by creating fabric and experimenting with pattern and form. Her colourwork journey began by learning to knit fairisle as a teenager. In the 1980s she discovered the bolder more experimental designs of Kaffe Fasset and her work began to draw on the relationship between textile design and patterns found in ceramics, tapestry and the built enviroment.
