Are you curious about how a concept becomes a pattern?
Have you ever wondered why some patterns are good and some are not?
Do you want to learn how to write a pattern for a small project?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, Behind the Scenes - Design Series is for you! They are single session workshops where you can learn about how patterns are written and how you can write your own.
Session 1 & 2 cost $35 separately. Session 3 has 2 parts and cost $50 separately or you can purchase a series pass to all 4 for just $125.
Session 1 (3/17 or 3/31; 2-4pm) Just the facts, please
In this session, we will look at how a pattern is born. From the development of the concept, selection of materials, creation of the prototype and the first draft of the pattern.
Session 2: (4/14, 12-2p or 4/22, 11-1p) Pattern Modification
Tweaking patterns to customize for fit, swap out stitch patterns and change parts (necks, armholes, collars, etc) you don't like will be explored in this session. This session will be a pre-requisite for participants in Sweater University 4 where we will be making a classic sweater vest that is customized.
Session 3 (5/30 & 5/31; 7-9pm or 6/6 & 6/10; 11a-1p) Let's Write
Try your hand at creating a pattern for fingerless gloves (Knit or Crochet). This 2 session class will focus on the writing of a pattern using a pattern template.
