Orenburg Lace Workshop with Anniken Allis

Orenburg lace shawls are traditionally knitted from very fine yarn hand-spun on spindles from goats down. In this class we'll look at a brief history of Orenburg lace shawls and you'll practice working different traditional Orenburg lace stitches, reading lace charts and you'll knit a mini version of a traditional Orenburg shawl. This class is suitable for confident knitters. Experience in lace knitting is not essential as there will be a choice of lace patterns to suit various experience levels. All materials will be supplied.

Sunday 10 February 2019 10am till 4pm

Cost: £59.00, £10.00 non-refundable deposit required. Includes a light lunch.
