Workshop Details

Date: Thursday 8th September Time: 10am-3pm Delicious homemade lunch included. Come and join us at Reef House for this fabulous knitting workshop with Gianna Knowles from Knorfolkknots. The workshop will focus on Stranded Colourwork Knitting and Pattern Design . Through practical experimentation, the first part of the workshop will focus n what colours works well together, knitting in the round and 'carrying' more than one strand of wool across a round. Later we will focus on designing a pair of fingerless mittens . We will look at colour option and design. Ideas for pattern ideas and colour choices may come from a variety of sources – personal inspiration or traditional colourwork motifs. Putting it all together Throughout the workshop advice and pattern design support will be provided to enable you to walk away with your own pattern for a pair of fingerless gloves. Patterns can be designed on paper – or on a laptop – depending on your preference. 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 • 100g of naturally dyed Blue Faced Leicester wool (your choice of colours), for your final design • Information/briefing handouts • Lunch! • laptops - optional if you wish to use for pattern design • Notebook. You need to bring: • 3.5 mm and 4.0mm circular needle(s) (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.
