WOOOO we have new classes

Darning your knits
with Julia Billings

Date : Saturday the 1st August 2015
Time: 2.00pm - 5.00pm
Where: fluph
Price: £35 which includes all materials
There is a small volume of homework which will be supplied once booking is confirmed.

Through the use of traditional darning methods, you can not only prolong the life of your knits but also reinvigorate them through the addition of colour and texture. In this 3-hour class, you will learn to darn holes both large and small, using a variety of knitted and woven techniques such as grafting, simple and advanced swiss darning and scotch weaving, as well as also explore ways to fix or replace worn areas, such as elbows, necks or cuffs. Most of the workshop will be dedicated to practicing on knitted swatches but we will also spend some time looking at damaged pieces in order to assess how to deal with holes and problems in your own well-loved projects. Please feel free to bring in your damaged knits but, please, no items with moth holes!

Level: Beginner

Skills required: Casting on and off, knit and purl
