Date: Thursday 16th June Time: 10am-3pm Delicious homemade lunch included. Come and join us at Reef House for this first knitting workshop with the fabulous Gianna Knowles from Knorfolkknots. The workshop will focus on Colour and construction. Choosing colours for your craft project can seem daunting. This part of the workshop will explore, through practical experimentation, what colours work together and why. Part 2 gets down to some knitting – exploring the technicalities of different types of triangular shawl construction.Part 3 of the workshop will focus on overall shawl design. Including experimenting with stitch design for additional interest and texture. This workshop is suitable for confident beginners – the experimental and open-ended nature of the workshop means it can be accessed at a range of levels – from confident beginner, to more experienced, depending on what you choose to focus on throughout the day. Included in the workshop are: • All yarns for practising and experimenting • 150g of naturally dyed Blue Faced Leicester wool (your choice of colours), for your final design • Information/briefing handouts • Lunch! You need to bring: • 3.5 mm needle(s), two sets, (emergency needles and notions will be available, but most knitters have ‘favourite’ makes and style of needles) • Stitch markers and sewing-up needle(s) • Notebook. Gianna is Norfolk by birth, and a teacher and lecturer by trade. Knorfolknots has evolved from her passion for textile design and her interest in the wool and dyeing history of the UK. That, and the importance of making things for personal creativity and wellbeing.
