1. Finishing School / Dylan Uscher/ **SOLD OUT**
We've all been there. You do all the knitting for a large piece that youre really excited about and then the piece just sit there for weeks (months? years?) unfinished in a bag. In this class, Dylan Uscher teaches you all the ins and outs of good finishing habits from proper sewing methods, blocking methods, and lots of tips and tricks to make your finished pieces look and feel professionally made. The class will cover sewing side seams, top seams (both finished and unfinished), blocking methods, the best ways to weave in ends, and covering over mistakes with various post-knitting methods. Bring 4 swatches on needles or stitch holders, preferably in a worsted or larger weight, 20 stitches wide and at least 4 long, a darning needle, and scissors or snips. Students are encouraged to bring in any knit, but unfinished projects theyve had lying around, so they can troubleshoot specific techniques and get their projects done.
2. Mosaic Knitting / Diane Ivey
Coined by Barbara G. Walker in teh late 1960's, Mosaic knitting may be the least known form of colorwork, yet it is a wonderful and easy way of knitting with two colors. In this class, Diane will demystify the technique, and show students how easy and satisfying it can be. It is great for beginners who haven't yet worked in multiple colors, or for intermediates who want to add the technique to their skillset. In addition to the technique, we'll discuss how to create Mosaic patterns, and put your own imagination for design to work.
3. Color Theory for Knitters / Michelle Charest
This class will explore the diverse ways color can be used in knitting. We will begin by using the color wheel to discuss useful concepts such as hue, saturation, and lightness, building on these concepts to consider how different colors and groups of colors interact. Then we will employ a variety of quick and simple methods of color testing and swatching to tackle the unique challenges knitters face when working with color. Specific topics will include: substituting colors and developing your own color palettes, working with multi-colored or variegated yarns, and choosing colors for colorwork. Please bring a set of colored pencils, minimum 2-yards each of 2 or 3 colors (or multi-colored) of any yarn you personally like. Your yarn will not be cut!
