Brioche Knitting with Sara Thornett
     
This is an one day workshop the cost is £58 and includes a complimentary lunch provided along with tea/coffee/soft drinks.
     
Brioche knitting is a very versatile technique that in its simplest form may be worked quite easily without the knitter really being aware that they are using such a fantastic method. It creates a fabric that is reversible and because of that, the results are quite thick and full bodied. It can therefore be quite lustrous.
     
This workshop will teach the basics of this technique, as well as show its capabilities. There will be a couple of projects available for the participants to choose from on the day. Its aim is to showcase a different knitting technique and inspire the participants towards future projects.
     
The tutor for this workshop is Sara Thornett. Sara has a Masters degree in Fashion and Knitwear. She is a published designer with patterns in books and online. Sara is a very experienced tutor and works nationwide as part of the Rowan Workshop Team.
