Time: 9.30am - 12noon
Tutor: Francoise (Frenchie) Danoy from Aroha Knits
Description: As a Maori artist and designer, many of Frenchie's patterns draw influence from traditional weaving motifs found in taaniko. It is part of her mission of using her work and art to express the stories, values, and perspectives of the culture, to enrich the knitting community with diverse experiences, to remember the past, and leave a legacy for the future. In this workshop, students will learn about the different taaniko motifs, their meaning, and significance, and then cast on a simple colorwork hat project that features one such motif.
Skill Level: Intermediate; the student needs to be comfortable with colorwork techniques.
Materials: Student must supply all materials. DK/8-ply weight yarn (two colorways,one skein each), US7 (4.5mm) knitting needles, locking stitch marker, pen or pencil.
