This workshop aims to give participants the chance to play around and experiment with the crafts of knitting and crochet in order to create a piece of constructed textile design which could be used as the basis for an interior decoration piece.
Participants will be encouraged to work on small knitted or crochet samples which whilst enhancing their skills will each become part of a larger patchwork piece. Techniques shown will include colour work, textural work, colour theory, beading and embellishing in the mediums of both knitting and crochet.
A good amount of yarn will be provided, but participants are asked to bring along pieces from their stash to use or swap with others. It is a good idea to also bring along beads, buttons, lace and ribbon which could be incorporated within the textile piece.
Participants need to have a knowledge of knitting stitches and should be able to understand knitting terminology – the ability to crochet is not essential.
