more details: find your inner knitwear designer in a supportive learning atmosphere. in this shortened crash course of the original 12-hour shawl design 101, you will learn basic shawl shapes, design math, why gauge swatches are important even for accessories, and where to find inspiration and how to store it for dry spells. students are expected to be comfortable with knitting basics. we will not be going over how to do specific stitches, but rather how to combine stitches and do the math to create something new. suggested knitting level is advanced beginner and up. 

in the second part of class, samson will lead students through photography basics, beginning with showing photos taken during the knitting portion and edited over the lunch break. using tools as simple as your smart phone, learn essential elements of storytelling to elevate your social media game and share special moments with loved ones.
