As part of Work-Shop Makery’s programme of activities and events on the theme of Upcycling in the month of June, we are delighted to have Annasophie offering her regular Knitting 101 class but with a new spin!
In Knitting with Tshirt Yarn, we’ll show you how to upcycle your unwanted or old tshirts into perfectly useable yarn. You’ll then learn the basics of knitting, including how to cast-on, knit the garter stitch, and bind off. We’ll knit up a coaster with your freshly made t-shirt yarn.
This class is perfect for absolute beginners.
Ani is a California native who relocated to Sydney after graduating from UC Berkeley in 2013. Her mum taught her to knit in Year 6, and her first project was a truly ugly pink scarf. It wasn’t until last winter, when she was stuck in bed with Glandular Fever, that she realised how rad knitting could be.
She started by knitting a pair of bright yellow shorts and continues to scour the internet for quirky knitwear inspiration. She’s since designed and hand knit a capsule collection for Madrid-based knitting DIY company, We Are Knitters.
