Join Lustre artist Hattie Startin to learn the basic techniques of stranded knitting to begin working with Fair Isle and Nordic style patterns. Participants will be taught how to introduce colour into their knitting, from basic, two-tone geometric patterns, to more elaborate designs utilising a greater colour range. Knitters will be shown how to achieve the right tension, and how to neatly finish off the ends. Basic knitting skills are required (knit and purl stitches), so the workshop is not suitable for complete beginners. To book, please contact the Box Office on 0115 846 7777.
