Dee will share some of the techniques which she teaches in her fine art drawing classes. Participants will arrive to find a beautiful and inspiringly dressed table laid out with a still life of seasonal flowers and foliage in Dee's signature style. From these we will create pastel drawings, concentrating on shapes and color. Dee will then guide participants on how to translate their artwork into beautiful charts for knitting. All of Dee's knitting designs begin as drawings and watercolours in her sketchbooks. This is a unique experience to learn some basic art skills that you can use to create your own knitting designs.
