Wild Knitting - The Tea Cosy. Naturellement!
"Five days!" you exclaim? Yes five days - with an extra half day for exhibition.
Wild Knitting is just one of 15 fabulous classes you can do. It will be a festival, a corroboree, a moon dance of textile tragics.
Sturt Winter School in Mittagong.
Workshop Mon 4 July - Fri 8 July.
Registration Sunday 3 July.
This will be One's third Sturt Winter School. One does love Mittagong in the winter.
Sturt is not limited to textiles. There is book making and water colour and basket weaving and pottery and jewelery and wood carving and...
Both these events are large annual events - very popular with classes often booked out well in advance.
(And yes - there is a noice little Q&A in the current Textile Fibre Forum magazine. Ta)
In a FIVE day workshop you can add to that...
"the tutor shares her voracious lust for colour, good design and beautiful wool...
You will explore the wild and sculptural possibilities of knitting.
You will design your own tea cosy and pattern it so that it can be recreated.
These workshops are not for the faint hearted - but look at those smiles!
Thank you Laura and Jan, (Sturt 2010), and Dorothy and Denise (Sturt 2009). Your tea cosies are MAGNIFICENT!
