Olga Buraya-Kefelian Workshop 2

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 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.

This class is part demonstration with an audiovisual presentation and a short talk about how to approach 3-D knitwear in hand knitting, including where inspiration comes from. It will be part swatch-fest and all inspiration. Olga will present her 3-D design philosophy, gearing it to your own discovery of how to see knitwear in a new light! Students can later choose to knit either the Moko-Moko Cowl or Ginga Cowl as part of their practice after swatching in class (these patterns are not included as part of the class.)
