Make your home cosy this winter by learning how to hand knit your very own chunky knit blanket.
Chunky knit blankets are completely on trend and are made with 100% merino wool. Softly textured, oversized, warm and inviting, not only will you add a special design touch to any room in your home; you will be the envy of all your friends.
This workshop will introduce participants to the basic techniques of hand knitting (no previous knitting experience or knowledge is required). It is so simple we won’t even be using knitting needles or our arms! Just our two hands!
Please note: Due to the high cost of 100% Merino tops (used for crafting your blanket) ticket prices are slightly higher than usual.
ABOUT STACEY BIGG AKA KALAII CREATIONS
Stacey Bigg by day works a normal day job with a Brisbane based University, but by night, is a self-taught creative of all things arts and crafts! Stacey’s passion for knitting developed after she attended a course here at our very own Workshop-Brisbane (How to weave a bag). Stacey caught the weaving and crocheting bug and went on to teach herself how to knit these luxurious blankets. Stacey has since opened up an Etsy store so she can make many more blankets and sell these as well as her digital prints.
Stacey hopes to add many more items to her Etsy store, like Kokedama and chrochet bags to name a few and continues to showcase her work through her Instagram page. Stacey is open to custom orders and collaborations.
- All materials will be provided to create your very own 1m x 1.3m blanket.
