With years of experience as a creative director of her knitwear clothing business, Yakshi has a thorough understanding of machine knitting. She created these workshops to offer additional help to students, teaching them the works of the machine from basics to a final shaped garment. Choose from a 1-to-1 which will be tailored to your requirements; a Beginner's class which offers you basics machine knitting knowledge to help you get started and Advanced class where you will learn how to create a mini garment from scratch. The advanced class is very helpful to take forward to final year collections.
ONE TO ONE TUITION
TIME : AS PER YOUR REQUIRMENT
COST : £25 PER HOUR
We offer one-to-one tutoring to students who require additional help with their coursework. This may particularly be beneficial to textile students transferring to knitwear who need to catch up with domestic knitting skills and pattern cutting. This is not limited to students, it could be anyone wishing to further their knitting skills.
Some areas of tutoring could include:
· Domestic machine knitting:
Basics such as tension swatches, different textures through fibres, techniques, shaping, creating garments etc.
Lace holes, laddering, weaving, ewrapping, cables, fairisles, flotas, tuck and slip stitch etc.
· Pattern cutting skills:
Measuring the body, measuring garments, creating patterns, fittings etc.
· Developing ideas from conceptual research:
Translating research into techniques/swatches, translating swatches into garments
The tutoring is tailored to every student’s requirements where we would commence with a free consultation to discuss the help required. You can come to us with your projects where we can help you from start (swatching) to finish (final garment including trims and finishings).
