Countdown to the summer design workshop has started and its all getting very exciting ! Starting June 23rd students from as far a field as Ukraine and as close as Horsham will be coming to Knit-1, getting to grips with knit machines and producing original and technically challenging fabrics.
The students are coming from a variety of backgrounds including; a knit designer from Urban Outfitters New York, a Central St Martins BA student and a Swiss Ukrainian marketing consultant/knit designer and will return to their courses / careers with a wealth of new knowledge and skills.
Simultaneously we will be exploring all that Brighton has to offer in The Royal Pavilion, museums, vintage/antique shops ( there are many) and boutiques, whilst also making the short journey to London to The V&A and the Southbank Centre - where there is a Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef !!
All this and visiting tutors..... I told you its exciting !
