DESCRIPTION:

Discover the KNITSONIK system and use it to create your own colourwork patterns and shading schemes based on views of Amsterdam. We’ll explore how to turn the busy urban landscape into manageable ideas for your knitting, using a pre-selected Amsterdam inspiration and a carefully curated palette of Jamieson and Smith yarn. Bring your favourite double-pointed or circular needles for working small-diameter stranded colourwork in the round with fingering weight yarn: 2.5-3.25mm depending on your tension. Knitters must know how to knit stranded colourwork in the round.

It is the perfect opportunity to learn not only how to translate colours and inspiration from daily life into your knitting, but also to create something that is truly a combination of Amsterdam and yourself. 

DESIGNER: Felicity Ford

I am Felicity Ford, AKA Felix, artist, academic, sound recordist, wool enthusiast and knitter. Along with Kate Davies and Tom van Deijnen I run the WOVEMBER website, and my research is drifting more and more towards projects which combine hand knitting with sounds under the KNITSONIK moniker.

WHAT IS KNITSONIK?

KNITSONIK is a division of my work in which I use sonic practices to explore the social, historic and geographic aspects of woolen textiles and clothing. KNITSONIK projects unite my enthusiasm for both wool and sounds, and synthesise ideas from hand-knitting and field-recording into a working artistic and research practice.

KNITSONIK ventures investigate relationships between woolen textiles and sounds in different ways which include:

  • embedding ideas about sound directly into wearable garments through hand-knitting
  • uniting textile objects with recorded sounds which convey their origins in
    distinctive places
  • using sound within the knitting community to explore different ways of thinking about the wool that we work with
  • amplifying wool both symbolically and literally
