Holistic Knitting Design with Laura Bryant
Every design has many facets that provide success (or failure). Work with Laura in an intimate, free-ranging class as we examine design from the perspective of an artist. Journey far beyond charting, pattern stitch and fit: we'll examine design from the ground up, creating a path for consideration of every detail. Even if you are not an experienced designer, examining knitting through an artist’s methods can lead to innovations and details that really create Wow! You will learn to find inspiration from unusual sources, and the emphasis will be on the artistry behind each decision every step of the way.. Whether working to an existing pattern or creating your own, this class will assist you in creating great garments, every time.
A garment you like, a garment you don't like, 3 or 4 magazine or catalog pages of any type of garment that attracts your attention.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
