What we say
Knitting is an exercise in mindfulness. Extreme Knitting is mindfulness on steroids.
Nurture your creative spirit and allow yourself to get lost for a while by learning the fundamentals of Extreme Knitting from Fibre Artist Jacqui Fink. Jacqui conceived of this innovative and self-taught process five years ago after a transformative experience.
In a generous and open environment, put yourself in the driving seat of your own Extreme Knitting journey by hand crafting an Extreme Scarf over 3 metres long from exquisite high grade Australian Merino wool.
Experience in the basics of knitting is helpful and will definitely enhance your learning experience but it is not a prerequisite for this class. If you have never tried knitting before or just want to brush up on your skills, look at some “how to” videos on YouTube before the class.
Please wear long pants or jeans to our class because Extreme knitting requires a somewhat indiscreet sitting position!
Extreme Knitting is definitely crazy but not hard. While the mechanics of knitting are the same, the process of extreme knitting does feel very different from regular knitting. This is a very physical exercise in which you will need to use your whole body to knit.
What they say
'Thank you does not quite express my sentiments for this weekend. That said, I'm so very grateful that you came all this way to teach us to be more artful and.. well beautiful. I wish I could have taken every class that you had available. I would even love to sit with Sarah and learn to better make delicious treats look equally yummy. She is a true artist as well.'
