Making Marls with Cecelia Campochiaro

Learn how to design and make beautiful and complex marled fabrics from fine yarn including choosing yarns and colors to make pieces with sequences of marls.  Students will swatch for both color and hand.

Instructor: Cecelia Campochiaro
Instructor Bio: Cecelia Campochiaro grew up in a family of artists and has been knitting since she was 12. Her professional work is to develop finely calibrated machines that inspect computer chips, which requires precision on par with counting a gauge swatch. While seeking simple knitting projects to take with her on business trips, Cecelia "unvented" a simple way of knitting in which complex-looking fabrics "just happen." This discovery led to mountains of swatches, months of work, and the publication, in 2015, of her beautiful, groundbreaking book, Sequence Knitting: Simple Methods for Creating Complex Reversible Fabrics.
