Thank you to everyone who came along to West Dean for the Baltic Knits workshop – and it will be great to see some of you again in February when we shall be exploring Crochet Nålbindning and more…
I’m looking forward to it!
There are still a few places left on the Baltic Knits: Explore Folk Knitting Techniques for Mittens, Stockings and Socks workshop at West Dean college.
If you want to know how to knit ‘birch bark patterning’, roositud woven inlay, vikkel braids, twisted braids, knotted and fringed cast on’s and all sorts of other Baltic knitting techniques then this is the workshop for you…

Revolutionise the way you knit!
Join me for a Northern Knits: Steeking and Cutting workshop at Yak in Brighton.
This 5 hour workshop will be held over two consecutive Sundays (22nd and 29th of November), and I guarantee it really will revolutionise your knitting!
Yak is a beautiful new yarn shop in the North Laines (5 minutes walk from the station), and is well worth a visit as its filled with many of the best hand dyed knitting yarns from ethically minded, independent companies in the UK – it will be a great venue for these classes…
Atelier51 are hosting a Christmas Open House and I shall be exhibiting alongside over 20 other makers and artists. This is all very exciting as Atelier51 is a brand new studio set in the heart of Brighton at 51 Providence Place – just behind London Road, near to Saint Bartholomew’s Church.
It’s also exciting for me as I’ve been busily designing a new collection of work and will be exhibiting a small, exclusive sample of this work for the first time. Officially, these new products will not be available to buy until next year so if you want to find out what I have been up to you will have to get yourselves to Brighton…
As well as the Baltic Knits workshop in November, I shall also be at wonderful West Dean again in February teaching two workshops on Swedish constructed techniques.
The first, Swedish Crochet: An Introduction to Crochet Nålbindning and Smygmask Virkning, runs from the 21st – 23rd February. This is a really exciting opportunity to learn Crochet Nålbindning, a ‘new’ technique that has only been acknowledged by the Nordic Museum in Stockholm as an authentic technique in the last few years.
You will also be able to learn Smygmask Virkning – an equally ancient slip stitch crochet technique that has long been used as a distinctively firm and decorative edging for Swedish folk knitted mittens, socks and sweaters.
I shall also be teaching Swedish Nålbindning: The Basics on the 24th February – this will be an ideal opportunity for those who missed the workshop last year or for anyone who needs a refresher.
