Olga Buraya-Kefelian Workshop 1

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


This workshop is designed to inspire you and enable you to easily complete the projects shown. No other workshop needs to be taken as a prerequisite.

Introduce yourself to a world of color work with the Slip Stitch Method. Olga’s method will take participants through the steps of the technique with plenty of tips and tricks to ease your way into it. You will become the master of tension and will be able to manipulate your fabric regardless of your yarn choice to achieve the most consistent and perfect results. We will work on a swatch using this technique, and experiment on creating different shapes and motifs. Or students can get a head start by working on the stockinette part of the Winter Suns Shawl pattern (pattern is not included with the class and must be purchased separately).
