Knitting on the Rocks. Expand your knit horizons and get wired! An introduction to small-scale work, this workshop presents alternative approaches to successful jewelry knitting with wire. Learn new ways to create knit stitches while exploring tubular structures, including how to encapsulate objects within knitting. Using basic stitches and copper wire in a beautiful range of colours, students will have the opportunity to design and execute unique pieces. We also cover resources, materials, and further design ideas. Previous wire or jewellery experience not required but basic knit skills necessary. Suitable for knit fanatics who want to knit everything they see.
Bring your own rocks.
