What’s On

Summer at The Colour Factory

Coming up in June & July, I will be taking part in the Textiles Summer workshops at The Colour Factory in Winchester.
I have put together three lovely projects to enjoy making for time in the garden and for decorating your summer table.
All the materials will be provided, so come and join a workshop ready to make something beautiful….

SAT JUN 15th

BEGINNERS KNITTING – MINI FLOWER POTS

For complete knitting beginners,  Mini Flower Pots will teach you a how to use a combination of simple stitches and yarns as well as teaching you how to cast on (& cast off) work with two colours and add increase stitches into your knitting.

A fun project for beginning your knitting journey.

SAT 6th JUL (morning)

IMPROVERS CROCHET – LINEN PLACE MATS & COASTERS

As a step on from beginner basics, this workshop will be exploring new stitches and techniques.

These pretty Linen Place Mats & Coasters can be made individually or as a set. Crocheted using linen yarn and bordered with a pop of colour for a beautiful table display.

SAT 6th JUL (afternoon)

IMPROVERS KNITTING – TEA LIGHTS

I love lighting candles for the garden during the summer months and these delicate tea-lights are a perfect summer project. I have designed these little covers with a pretty lace pattern which will gently diffuse the candle light.

If you feel confident reading a pattern and can work knit & purl stitches, then Lace-work is a wonderful technique to explore.

Linen Collection is another lovely project using linen yarn for making both a Crossbody and Phone Pouch. Perfect for carrying your phone, sun glasses and other summer accessories.

SUN JUL 21st

Mandala Frame is a fun workshop for those who have learnt the beginner basics and want to develop their crochet skills further….exploring new stitches and playing with different colour yarn combinations.

Once you start making them they become slightly addictive! …
