This course will take you on a design and knitting journey as you create your own knit wire tiara.
We will consider shape, style and material. You will gain confidence in making design decisions and find the best way for you to create. You will learn wire knitting and explore various knit shapes and elements.
You will already be able to cast on and off and to knit a basic stitch. Basic Shetland Lace Knitting techniques and patterns are included. Patterns are included for small knit elements like leaves.
There are only 6 places on this course so everyone receives attention. We will meet each week on Zoom. By the end of week 2 or 3 you will have your design finalised and we will knit and complete the tiaras by the end of week 4.
I have been designing and knitting tiaras for more than 20 years and I'm VERY excited to share my knowledge with you!
This course is delivered over 4 weeks and the times and dates can be arranged to suit you. I need 4 sign ups to run this course.
Various materials and equipment packs are available to order seperately or I can provide you with a recommended list and you can source your own.
This course is for you if you have a desire to design and knit fabulous tiaras either for your self or for friends. I am waiving my copyright on the elements designs so you can develop these and sell your own tiaras if you desire.
"This class was amazing for someone who doesn’t knit lace or with wire. My hands didn’t hurt at all and was so much fun to learn about the different wire types and designs. The many ways to add beads was educational.
Tiara’s are like potato chips, because once you make one you have to have another. Thanks Helen for all your kind support and knowledge."
“Helen’s extensive knowledge of knitting with wire saves you countless hours of trial and error. Using her very detailed handouts and instructions, I was able to design and complete my tiara before the end of the course. I even wore it on our final Zoom meeting. The classes were relaxing, informative, and very fun. Highly recommend."
This class will run with minimum 4 participants, I will contact you to schedule times and days to suit all.
