Join Stephen West for a virtual lecture and shawl show that explores clever ways to shape knitted fabrics. You will gain a deeper insight into the formulas and construction methods that are the backbone of your favourite Westknits shawl shapes. 

In this online presentation, Stephen will share the secrets behind the construction of some of his most recognisable designs like Herbivore, Rockefeller, and Chrysler as well as sharing sneak previews of unreleased designs and new projects. You will also learn some of Stephen's top tips for shawl knitting.

The 1 hour 15 minute webinar is conducted via Zoom and will include interactive polls and a Q&A session, so wear your Westknits and come prepared with your shawl shaping questions! Malia, the founder of Stephen & Penelope is hosting the session and will be moderating your questions.

This session is perfect for Westknitters of all experience levels, and is particularly well suited to knitters who are curious to experiment with their own designs. Participants of this webinar enjoy a 20% discount on all Westknits patterns with a code revealed in the session*, and will leave with a richer understanding of Stephen's design process and inspired to experiment with their own shawl shapes.

*discount code is valid until 31 July 2020
Webinar cost is €20 plus tax.



Where’s the presentation held?
This is an online presentation, so you can enjoy it in the comfort of your home, anywhere in the world!

What do I need to prepare and bring with me?
Nothing! This is an inspiration lecture rather than a workshop. Stephen will share his construction techniques and explain the methodology behind his designs to inspire your next project. If you have questions about Westknits construction, come prepared to ask them!
Do I need to dress up for this?
Only Stephen and Malia will be visible, attendees won’t. This means you don’t have to worry about what’s going on in the background of your zoom call or put on pants with a non-elasticated waistband. We do encourage you to wear your Westknits to put you in the mood though!
