Discover the different methods to integrate letters and words into your knitted fabrics with Typeknitting. You will learn how to pixelate font letters and other types of letters to knit with slip stitches and shadings or patchwork.
How does the workshop work direct?
Once you join this theoretical-practical workshop, you will receive a PDF document that you will have to print before the event. It will be necessary for the online class. That way you will be able to start experimenting with Typeknitting once the class is over.
Development of the workshop
In this workshop, you will learn step by step how to translate typography or font to a knitting pattern.
Rüdiger Schlömer will make an introduction about the different types of knitting methods and the possible points of connection with your projects.
After that, he will focus on the patchwork technique as a base for the building of simple letters. Once you know the basics, you will be able to apply patches to your big-size projects like pillows or blankets.
Once the workshop is over, there will be a question and answers section about its content.
