WORKSHOPS

With 12 years experience working on domestic knitting machines & a 1st class degree in fashion & textile design, Amber teaches workshops at her home studio & at the Bristol Textile Quarter & designs for her own label based in Bristol. These workshops are brilliant for beginners, students (A level & above, they are a great head start for fashion textile degrees & foundation art courses) and creatives who want to try something new.  The idea behind all of these workshops is that you are taught a range of techniques & the basics so that you can explore with confidence the world of machine knitting afterwards.   If you can’t make any of the dates below then- please email studio@amberhards.co.uk

At the end of June I will be taking a break from teaching until December.  There will be limited availability for workshops in December 2019-May 2020.  If you would like to do a workshop but can’t make any of the dates then you can either book onto a one-to-one workshop or find a friend & contact me with some alternate dates & we can arrange a private class for you both.

Fantastic weekend workshop. From total beginner with no experience I now feel confident to get started on my knit machine having learnt so many techniques. I came away feeling very inspired by all the possibilities! Thank you Amber, hoping to come back for another course soon x

I had a great day with Amber and learned so much about using my knitting machine! I came away confident to cast something on when I got home and stuck into practising different shaping, techniques and fixing mistakes that had been difficult to learn online. I’ve recommended Amber’s course to several people, we had a lovely day together and it was worth every penny. Thanks Amber!
