Colouring-in for Stranded Colourwork Design
A sample mini-course from KNITSONIK
This is a fun and informal exploration of colouring-in for stranded colourwork design. It's designed to give you lots of ideas you can use to recolour charts; draw out charts in your journal or on gridded paper; and maximise your enjoyment of colouring-in as an aid to stranded colourwork design.
Felicity (Felix) Ford is a practicing artist and creative instructor. She primarily works with knitting and sound - hence KNITSONIK.
Her work is mostly focused on uplifting and celebrating daily life through creative practice. From her work on soundart commissions for museums like The Wellcome Library and the Charles Dickens Museum, to her self-published knitting books on translating everyday life into stranded colourwork, all Felix's work is, at its heart, about loving - and creatively engaging with - our real, everyday lives.
Felix has taught in many different places including the Ediburgh Yarn Festival; Shetland Wool Week; at the Tuned City Soundart Festival; and as an undergraduate lecturer at Oxford Brookes University during and following her doctoral research there. She loves teaching and the rich exchange of ideas inherent to the process.
Whether writing, knitting or recording sounds, her focus is always on celebrating the textures of daily life and on helping others find ways to do the same.
