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.   For information about student discount or 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 2019.  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!
