Knitting workshop series: basics + taking it up a notch!
Knit fabrics are used in artwork, activism, apparel, medical and mechanical applications. If you’ve never touched knitting needles before and would like to learn how knit fabrics are constructed, this class is for you!
In the first 60-minute workshop, you'll create a simple project that covers casting on, knit and purl stitches, and binding off. Knitting is a cumulative skill: once basic stitches are learned, knitted fabric can be shaped into almost any form. In a second, 60-minute workshop the following week, we will use a simple project to cover shaping your knitting with increase and decrease stitches.
We’ll have a curated selection of knitting-centric library resources on display, and introduce other Makerspace technology that can be used support academic and creative projects.
This workshop is free and open to any UGA undergraduate student with a valid UGA ID. This series is limited to four UGA undergraduate student participants and registration is required. Participants must be able to attend both workshops in the series. Supplies provided.
