OM KNITWEAR
On this two-day course, you will work with Modular Style Intarsia Knit and Transformable Garments with multiple applications.

This course has two parallel courses: One for hand knitters and one for machine knitters.
OBS! You have to choose between the two and only sign up for one of them.
(If both courses are fill up, you will have the possibility to flex between the two courses – in agreement with the teachers.)

OM Knitwear is a concept developed by Olga Buraya-Kefelian (Olgajazzy) and Mette Hyllested-Winge (MHW Knitwear and ITO-Knitto).
The idea behind OM Knitwear is to explore the differences and similarities in the two manufacturing methods: hand knit and machine knit.
OM Knitwear develop designs that look the same but are created very differently. OM knitwear strive to generate new and groundbreaking techniques developed in the crossover between hand- and machine knit.

PROGRAMME
The programme is the same for hand knitters and for machine knitters.

DAY 1: MODULAR STYLE INTARSIA KNIT

Working Intarsia is generally known to be a very tedious type of knitting, however working Intarsia modular style is different and helps knitters achieve more serene way of working with color while creating shapes utilizing short rows
In this workshop we will master the technique so we can create Wave Cowl (or Wave Poncho) in either solid or 2 colors.

DAY 2: TRANSFORMABLE GARMENTS
Intermediate Adaptable garments are among the most sustainable garments one can create and have in one’s wardrobe. This new design is a short-sleeved top that can be styled in several ways while at the same time can be easily transformed into a skirt with a variety of fitting options suitable for every day as well as for a special occasion. And it is also reversible!

INSPIRATIONAL WORKSHOP – Colour compositions and new iedas
DATE: 4 – 5 July 2020
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

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.
