Sculptural Knitted Wire Jewellery
Knitting metal wire in the traditional way with two needles or even on a spool or knitting Nancy results in a very open knit as wire is not elastic in the way that yarn is.
During this workshop, we will explore an alternative technique of knitting wire which allows you to knit beautiful 3D forms with greater control over the size of the stitches and texture of the knit than traditional knitting. We will begin with a sample to learn how to cast on, knit and cast off.
We will work on a small project of sculptural knitted beads and experiment with different ways of using them in jewellery.
