Reknitting in Rugby, part 1

Saturday, September 24, 2016

After another long break from this blog (oops), I'm back - with renewed reknitting vigour.

In advance of my solo exhibition at Rugby Art Gallery next summer, I'm running a series of three workshops sharing the reknitting techniques. The first workshop took place today, and went very well indeed!

I promised the lovely knitters who took part that I would publish a post with links to the pages of the reknitting resource relating to what we did today, so here goes:

Inspiration and introduction

Playful deconstruction (chopping up!)

The spectrum of reknitting treatments

Sampling: knitting off open stitches

Sampling: adding a frill (optional homework!)

[Rugby knitters: don't forget to bring one or more garments that you might like to reknit next time ... and if you have friends who would like to come along to the other workshops, they are very welcome! Please ask them to book, if possible, on 01788 533217. Thanks again!]

My plan is that running these workshops will help me to put together some instructions on reknitting for beginners, that I can share more widely. Watch this space!
