Intarsia Mixology – a virtual workshop with Ann Weaver

October 24, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Event Category:

Join designer Ann Weaver for a virtual workshop on intarsia! Participates will choose their yarn kit to make this intarsia cowl.

About the workshop:

Intarsia—a method of working patches of color—doesn’t have to be intimidating, and it doesn’t have to create a snarled mess. This workshop is based on a scarf/cowl recipe that includes simple, geometric intarsia motifs of various sizes. The recipe starts with two-color intarsia and gradually increases in complexity. By the end of the workshop, you’ll feel comfortable working with at least four colors per row, and your color transitions will be top-notch!

Skills learned: intarsia

  • Workshop fee includes yarn kit in your choice of color – neutrals, warms or brights.
