Using one of my simple sweater patterns – we will see how many different ways we can knit it.
Each new sweater will be at better version than the original – with new details, colours, structure, yarn. We will redesign and add to the pattern to make the sweater perfect – just like we want it.
The pattern is knit sideways and can fit all body shapes and sizes. The pattern will be available to use and manipulate in designAKnit. DesignAknit is not a must-have for this course – but it makes the production easier.

INSPIRATIONAL WORKSHOP – Colour compositions and new ideas

TEACHER: Astrid Skibsted Holm (dk)
PRICE: kr. 1,300.- incl. lunch, tea/cofee, incl. yarn for smaller projects
REGISTRATION: isagerstrik.dk – workshops – weaving
LANGUAGE: This workshop is in Danish but English speaking attendants are welcome
ACCOMMODATION: Tversted Skoles Guesthouse

COLOUR COMPOSITONS AND NEW IDEAS
This workshop is about yarns, colours and materials. Using my design process and twining methods, we will play with materials and challenge our colour choises and habits. Together we will come up with new ideas for future creative projects, and the products we make in this process will turn into small pictures. We will look for various sources of inspiration and work with basic colour theories, using yarn and textile as materials.
As yarn has its very own way of containing colours, it becomes a complex and exciting material to work with. The way the yarn is spun and the textile combination in which it is used, affects the colours.

Things to bring:
Different yarn and yarn left overs in different colours (Isager will provide samples for smaller projects)
Tape and cardboard 1 – 1.5mm
Inspiration: Art books, photos, cookbook or items from nature.

ABOUT JULIE
Julie Arkell studied Textiles at West Surrey College of Art and Design followed by a year at St Martins School of Art in London. She grew up in a household where everything was handmade, which instilled a love of domestic materials that continues to this day. Using papier mache, fabric and wool she molds, knits and stitches onto her pieces to create her own world.

LOVE LETTERS
This workshop is all about lettering and crating beautiful postal art – by hand!
The days have a loose structure but each day has a new theme.

Each day starts with a calligraphy / lettering component and introduction to a new typeface.
In the afternoons different techniques will be introduced:

– August 3rd will have a Paper DECORATING theme (Paste-Paper, and Suminagashi marbling) in the afternoon
– August 4th will have a Paper PRINTING theme (Stencilling and Mono-Printing) in the afternoon
– August 5th the afternoon will have Paper BINDING (simple Bookbinding and Pop-Up pages) to round off the day.
At the end of each day, it will be possible for each student to work on his or her own for a couple of hours to practice the different techniques or preparing projects for the next day.

ABOUT DOUGLAS
Douglas Bevans began his formal art studies at San Francisco Art Institute, only 4 blocks away from his family’s typesetting shop where his interest in letters began.
He became a freelance illustrator after further studies at Art Center in Los Angeles. Attracted by the wealth and variety of English illustration, he moved to London in 1985.
The opportunity to teach Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, brought together his interest in lettering and image making. He now teaches at the Royal College of Art, and feels that drawing and lettering find their most agreeable combination in Calligraphy.
