Developing Stranded Motifs
An in-person class with Janine Bajus
Mar 3, 9:00am-12:00pm
Create your own, unique stranded designs!
In a world awash in mass produced items, you might long to create your own unique stranded motifs. Machines can knit perfectly but they cannot capture express what is in our imagination! Whether you are inspired by a landscape or a piece of poetry or a moving piece of art, I will guide you through a step-by-step process that will result in unique, beautiful, and meaningful motifs that can be used in many different ways. Come to class with your ideas, no matter how vague, for something you’d like to knit—photographs are very useful starting points. Please note that we will not be discussing color in this class.
