About this course

This short Textile course will give you the opportunity to create a unique scarf of your own design. You will be able to choose either to knit and embellish a scarf from a pattern of your choice (or from one provided by the tutor) or to embellish a ready-made felt or silk scarf, using surface embroidery stitches, ribbons, buttons or beads. You will have the opportunity to try a number of different stitch techniques and to try your hand at design.
By the end of this course you should be able to
• Describe and explain the techniques of knitting and/or embroidery
Either –
• produce a range of embroidery stitches including some or all of: satin; seed; stem; long and short; back; lazy daisy; French knots; bullion bars.
Or
• follow a written or charted knitting pattern
• Produce a decorated scarf

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for you to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will be required to provide sufficient materials for their own project; your tutor will give advice on this, if you require it, in the first session. You will also need to bring a basic sewing kit, notepad and pencil.

What can I do next?

Further Textile or Craft courses with KAE.

What do I need to join the course
