The Creative Center – teaching a workshop in fiber, Friday, February 20th

February 3, 2015

Lisa Daehlin teaching fiber workshop at The Creative Center_Banner_Screen ShotFiber Arts: Embroider & Embellish a Knitted Pouch (one-day workshop) Friday February 20 10:00am – 3:00pm Class Location: University Settlement, 184 Eldridge Street, Art Room Starting with a pre-knitted piece of fabric (no knitting necessary, unless you would like to), we will make our own personalized small purse/pouch. The class will explore embroidery, duplicate stitch, braiding, and crochet as forms of embellishment. Supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring a few items of your own (buttons, beads, small pictures, etc.) to add to your project to make it all the more personally expressive. Though many of us will be making a purse/pouch, you could easily turn your project into a pillow, or a picture frame, or... Let your creativity guide the way! LISA DAEHLIN is a knitting designer and opera chanteuse. She teaches in venues including the Studio Arts Workshop at Newark Museum, PS122 Gallery, Harlem Knitting Circle, Vogue Knitting Live, and the American Folk Art Museum in New York. A continuing education faculty member at The Cooper Union for seven years, she has the honor of having been the first teacher of knitting and crochet courses at this historic institution. A sought-after designer of knitted and crocheted fabrics and objects, she free-lances for the fashion industry and retail design. Her designs can be seen walking the streets of Manhattan, gracing the pages of Interweave Knits, Knit.1, Knit Simple and Vogue Knitting magazines as well as featured in Lace Style, Bag Style and The New Tunisian Crochet books published by Interweave Press, and Vogue Knitting: Ultimate Hat Book and Vogue Knitting: Shawls and Wraps by Sixth and Spring Books. http://www.delisa.us/ and https://lisadaehlin.wordpress.com/Fiber Arts: Embroider & Embellish a Knitted Pouch (one-day workshop)

These Norsk guys are rocking the knitting world. Be there, or be a trapezoid.” ok, so that’s a rough translation, but you get the gist. ;-)
