Discover Culture: Illusion Knitting
Grab your knitting needles and join Lena Hardiman on Saturday, October 4 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., as she introduces the art of illusion knitting.
Illusion knitting produces a piece of textile that shows two distinct patterns. From one angle, you see a series of stripes and from another angle you see a hidden design! Participants are recommended to have a basic understanding of knitting although those with no experience are still invited to attend. Lena will quickly review knit and purl stitches which are needed to create the illusion!
For advanced knitters, choose from a selection of one-of-a-kind illusion patterns created especially for Discover Culture. Just as its name suggests, the origins of illusion knitting are steeped in mystery, though it is commonly believed to have started in Japan as a craft.
Space is limited and materials will be provided. Register by emailing Lena Hardiman at Learn@pier21.ca. Presented in English at 11 a.m. and in French at 2 p.m.
