    Concentrating on Colour, Brandon Mably

    Wednesday, 15th November. Knitting Workshop, Brandon Mably
    10am – 4pm
    Skill level: This Magic Balls class is open to anyone who can do basic stocking stitch  and who are looking to develop their skills and knowledge working with many colours

     

    Enjoy a one day creative knitting workshop with Brandon Mably from the Kaffe Fassett Design Studio. This workshop is for knitters who are interested in sharpening their colour observation in design.

     

    Participants should know how to knit and purl – only the basic stocking stitch will be used in the workshop.

     

    This course inspires knitters to sharpen their observation of colour by working with a range of light and dark colours in contrasting tones.

     

    The experience gained should give knitters the confidence to use their own personal colour scheme in any of their own designs in the future.

     

    Brandon will give an introduction to the Persian Poppy design, and then students will work from a basic given graph which he will provide.
    Brandon will demonstrate the method of carrying yarn in fairisle and intarsia knitting and then work with students as they apply the technique to their own knitting.
    Attention will be paid to colour, texture, pattern and everyone will work on a swatch using at least 12 colours.
    Only the basic stocking stitch will be used.

     

    Brandon will critique everyone’s work in the afternoon, in a very positive way!

    Requirements

    • Scissors and Knitting needles – whichever size is most comfortable for the student, suggest a range of UK 6 or US 8.
    • At least 20 colors of yarns in small quantities (Bring min. 10 light or bright colors and 10 dark or deeper colors in lots of in small quantities (golf ball size windings) in either a DK weight or 4 ply.
