SHETLAND LACE with Gudrun Johnston

 Sunday, November 16, 11am to 4pm

In this class we will explore the techniques and patterns that pertain to Shetland Lace knitting . We will practice knitting the more complex lace patterns where motifs are worked on both the RS and WS of the work.  We will also cover how to work a knitted on edging and how to form the center triangle of a traditional Shetland shawl.  An overview of Shetland shawl constructions will be provided as well as some historical background. Samples of Gudrun's work will be available to view in class.

 

Experience: Intermediate/Advanced. It is important that you have some experience knitting lace.
