Open Knitting Lab Now on Thursdays!

Knitting Workshops @ ArtCenter/South Florida

Thursdays, 7-10 p.m. @ 924 Lincoln Rd. #100

Why learn to knit in a city known for its heat?

1.) Because there are many tropical-friendly styles that can be created with cotton yarns and open weaves including bathing suits, tunics and dresses.

2.) To make gifts like cozy scarves for families and friends in cold climates.

 Karelle Levy, a local fashion designer and textile artist who founded KRELwear and launched the Stitchin’ Boozin’ Bitchin’ knitting series at the Standard Hotel and Spa in Miami Beach, expands with a knitting workshop hosted at ArtCenter/South Florida (924 Lincoln Road, Studio 100) that’s open to the public and doesn’t require pre-registration.

Participants will learn basic techniques such as casting on, knit and pearl stitches and casting off, precisely the steps to make a simple scarf. Starter kits with knitting needles and yarn are provided, as well as refreshments. Advanced, one-on-one workshops also are available.

The fee is $25 per person (cash or check) for a 3-hour workshop limited to 10 people.
