Held at EOM studios in Mulranny, Co Mayo, Di offers this class for those who want to further their knitting and design skills.
Here is what she has to say about her class:
People will need to bring their own knitting needles and some inspirations for them to work from...this may be a poem, fabric, drawing, painting, fashion piece, music, object, but all working towards creating a special piece to take away.
We will be working on a 'knitting diary' and including a lot of colour and stitch work. We will cover fair isle, intarsia, knit weave, lace and textured knitting. I will have a large stash of yarn with me for the class to work with and will be showing a slide show of work and the inspirations behind my latest pieces.
I will also be bringing latest designs and talking about each piece and the construction and shaping of designs. This is a highly creative class and very rewarding to all who take part.
