With Cecelia Campchiaro Nov 6 10:00am-12:10pm AND Nov 8 10:00am-12:10PM CST This class is an introduction to the wonderful world of using marls as a kind of colorwork and is also an introduction to Cecelia's new book, Making Marls.
Cecelia Campochiaro appeared on the knitting scene in 2015 with her debut book, Sequence Knitting. She lives in Silicon Valley, where for many years she developed specialized microscopes used in computer chip manufacturing. Textiles, photography, and the arts have been a lifelong passion running in parallel with her technical life. In high school and college, even though her main studies were in the sciences, she studied drawing, printmaking, ceramics, and photography. Knitting was a casual pastime until she had an ah-ha moment in 2010, and realized that textured fabrics could be created by the simple repetition of a sequence of stitches. This idea evolved into sequence knitting, which is a mindful approach to knitting that leads to textured reversible fabrics. Today she is fully dedicated to the fiber world and ‘unventing’ new ways to make amazing knit fabrics. Her latest book is Making Marls.
