Over two weekends (Saturday-Sunday, November 18, 19, December 2 & 3), learn to knit a monogram, name tag, instagram meme, poster, scarf, pullover, or blanket during this online typeknitting workshop. Use your skills as a visual plug-in to create tactile lettering and produce objects and clothes, or simply as a typographic meditation. This online workshop consists of 4 sessions over two weekends.
Participants will explore different typefaces like Knit Grotesk, which was developed specifically for hand knitting, and recently released by the Swiss type foundry Nouvelle Noire. We will cover different knitting methods with possible connection points to your personal knitting and graphic design projects.
Knitting exercises will be done using techniques like slip-stitches, mosaic knitting, and illusion knitting. After a basic overview, we will focus on fundamental approaches to modify or construct letters, words, and layouts. We will explore ways to plan and knit single letterforms and repeat patterns in different scales, preparing you to develop patterns of your own.
