Machine Knitting: Garment Making Skills
This 3-hour private class focuses on the skills needed to create a fully fashioned garment on the knitting machine. Students will be introduced to gauge, shaping methods, hems, edgings and garment details. The process of blocking and joining knitted pieces together will also be explored, as well as key design principles within sweater shapes and knitted styles. Students will learn how yarn, gauge and stitch types can affect the resulting garment. Basic pattern making will be introduced as well as the process of using an existing garment's measurements to base a new design upon.
This class is taught on a single bed standard gauge domestic knitting machine by textile and knitwear designer Florence Spurling at her home studio. All materials are included in the fee.
