tapestry knitting workshop
In this class students will learn to manipulate multiple strands in each row as they "draw" with yarns that have already been painted! We will talk about how to draw small charted elements to incorporate, or the possibility of making an overall charted scheme to work within... or students may wish to complete their entire design freehand as they knit. This class will combine intarsia and fair isle knitting in a loose and creative way. You may wish to do patterning in certain areas or to let your striping yarns make patterns for you. You may sprinkle in textural stitches or beads or embroider areas over top to accentuate details later. In this class you will learn to be open to watching what happens as you knit and to design as you go.
