This Christmas themed workshop will be based on ideas and techniques from one of Sarah Hazell's recent books, The Knitted Alphabet, which she co-authored with Kate Haxell. Over the course of two days, you will learn how to incorporate letters from eight different font styles into your knitting. Techniques covered during the weekend will include fair isle, intarsia, beading, swiss darning and texture. Font styles will vary from modern to retro, classic to contemporary. The workshop is project based and all yarns and beads will be provided.
Participants need to bring along a selection of needle sizes from 3mm-5mm, cable needles, a fine eyed needle and thread, a sewing up needle and scissors.
