Breidag Nederlandske strikkedager

Breidag 2017


Helgen 19 til 20 maj 2017 arrangerers det nederlandske strikkedager i Rijswijk like utenfor Amsterdam

i Nederland. Strikkefestivalen har 70 utstiller og mange workshops. Designer Donna Smith er hovedgjesten

på festivalen, men Norge er også representert ved Annemor Sundbø som skal holde ett foredrag på lørdag.

Festivalen holdes i Broodfabrik og koster 9 euro for en dag og 17 euro for to dager.


Man kan delta på mer enn 15 workshops daglig. Her har man inspirerende og tilgjengelige økter som lærer deg ny teknologi og utvikler dine håndarbeidskunnskaper.Kunnskap som du higer etter å ta i bruk med engang ! Hver workshop har en egen gradering av hvor øvet du må være for å delta. Nybegynner er 1 og så øker det opp til 5 som er meget øvet.

Man må være til stede senest fem minutter før workshopen starter på verkstedet. Når workshopen har startet, kan man ikke delta. Det er for at designeren skal få fred til å undervise, og man får ikke tilbakebetalt billetten hvis man kommer for sent.

Knitting is next to hip and trendy and also very relaxing. It’s great fun to knit your own scarf, hat or gloves. But did you know that you can brighten it with a few simple embroidery stitching? Emboridery on your bought or homemade knitware can make it even more personal.
In this workshop you will learn how you can make (free) embroidery on knitting.

* How can you prevent your knitting will stretch as you embroider it.
* Some simple embroidery stabbing as stem stitch, satin/flat stitching, daisy stitch, blanket stitch and French knot.

The teacher: Majo van der Woude embroiders as since her primary school.
She’s at home and abroad, and now gives also online courses in a variety of embroidery techniques.
Embroidery means to her:
do it (create/make your own)
learning (technology/sitiching/crafts in other cultures/inspiration)
study (historical context/storage/preservation of ancient techniques)
being together and collaborate with peers (encourage each other and learn from each other) and provides balance/rest as opposed to today’s busy society.

And that is to transfer them, where the important thing is that they have fun chance to create something / make.

Wol & Co – Explore color

Teacher: Ronald Bos

In this workshop you will learn what colors can do for you, and how you can make the best choice for colors in your project. Of course we give you some basic knowledge about color theory but you will mainly get to work. This workshop is interesting for all textile handicraft forms in which color plays a major role. You do not have to knit or crochet for working with yarn.
You can also ask questions about any color projects and patterns that you struggle with and get tips how you can continue so bring also your work to a next level.

We’re going to continue talking about cool and warm colors and how to change your perception, contrasts, combinations and how you can make that something more exciting. You learn how colors affect each other and thus the shape of your project and of course we talk about tricks and tools to choose color and much more.
Participants in these workshops will receive a 10% exhibition discount on the book ‘Draad! 3′ which was published in February 2017 and is dedicated to the use of color!
