Machine knitting workshops are offered as an intensive introduction to the basics of knitwear design. Over two full weekends this course aims to introduce students to the creative and technical possibilities of knitted fabrics as a tactile and moldable form. Students will be encouraged to experiment with different yarn qualities in fabric and garment construction, resulting in concept pieces and design boards to be added to their final portfolio. This course provides a hands on approach to materiality and the opportunity to experiment and practice new skills. Equipment and space is limited to 10 students total. This allows for a focused and flexible learning environment with individual attention to design.
