I am thrilled to be teaching at Barcelona Knits 16-17 November 2019. The workshop program has just been released, but the tickets do not go on sale until June 11. I will be holding 3 workshops, all in English: Smart Knitting Techniques, Perfect Fit and Cable Knitting. You can read more details on the Barcelona Knits’ website. It was after watching podcasts from the first Barcelona Knits festival, held last year, that I became interested in taking part. I was reminded of the festival early this year when the Argentine designer Joji Locatelli posted the dates for this year’s festival.
I e-mailed a request to the organisers together with a presentation of myself. One of the four organisers, Marta, responded that they found my designs stunning and thought my workshops would bring something different to Barcelona Knits. I revealed that my Spanish is extremely basic and that I would have to teach in English, however I did know that several workshops were given in English last year. Designer Isabell Kraemer, who I met at the Vienna Wool & Design Festival, is going too and told me that last year’s festival was a success! I look forward to going to Barcelona Knits to meet more knitters and designers in real life!
