I just have to share with you one of the absolute highlights this season!
Knit with attitude invites you to celebrate Wool Week 2014 with us, and come to our Masterclass with Erika Knight – Saturday October 11th.
The Campaign for Wool is a global endeavour initiated in order to raise awareness amongst consumers about the unique, natural and sustainable benefits offered by wool. Every year The Campaign for Wool stages Wool Week, a week long festival celebrating wool in all its guises. Wool Week 2014, Knit with attitude joins the party and we are delighted to host an open Masterclass; a talk by prominent supporter of The Campaign for Wool, renowned designer Erika Knight.
“I am proud to be associated with the Campaign for Wool a countrywide initiative convened by HRH Prince of Wales, promoting the natural, sustainable origin of wool, and as such I am passionate to be bringing manufacturing back to Britain and keeping sheep a feature of our landscape.”
Erika Knight; designer, author, consultant to the fashion and yarn industry, and lecturer at the V&A Museum in London as well as other Leading Art Institutions and Universities. Her own 'Erika Knight' yarn collection is the culmination of Erika’s career as a knitwear and craft designer with an unwaveringly-held belief in the importance of treading lightly on the earth and celebrating and supporting traditional British skills.[caption id="attachment_566" align="aligncenter" width="397"] Erika Knight at Knit with attitude[/caption]
Behind her passion for the handmade lies Erika’s trend forecasting skills, and her ethos of minimalism and eco-design, which has created her unique interpretation on Craft. She is highly influential and a sought after lecturer and workshop developer. Earlier this year she collaborated with Knit for Peace on their knitting holiday The Colour Experience; travelling with the organisation to India, visiting the the local charitable projects supported by Knit for Peace and hosting workshops on colour experimentation.
We have asked Erika to share her experiences, her passion and her views on knitting and it's place 'in the world' with all of us. After the talk, feel free to mingle and chat, have a look at the gorgeous Erika Knight yarns and books we have in stock, and you might even persuade Erika to sign a book for you. Please note that the talk is a festive and free event, however because of limited seating we need you to book your spot for us to hold it for you.
