We are delighted to also welcome back Renee Callahan.  We had such fantastic feedback from everyone who took part in her sold out brioche stitch workshop last year, it was a no brainer to invite Renee again.

Renee Callahan, aka EastLondonKnit, teaches knitting classes, designs knitting patterns and podcasts about her love of slow fashion and making and sharing beautiful, useful things.

After studying fashion design with knitwear at Central Saint Martins college, Renee began to hoard yarn and a range of knitting machines. She loves textiles and the technical challenge of knitting.

Renee is constantly creating new patterns and combinations of texture and colour and spends as much time as she can hand knitting.

Renee will be leading two workshops at this year’s Yarningham.  Finishing Techniques and 3-D Knitting.  For more information and to book a place on Renee’s workshops, please visit our website.

2018 Workshop Tutors : Nathan Taylor

We are so pleased to welcome back Nathan Taylor, (aka Sockmatician) to this year’s Yarningham.  We are big fans of his podcast and he made such an impression on us, we had to invite him back.

Nathan Taylor is obsessed with double- knitting.  He has been knitting and designing seriously since 2011. His passion is for sharing his knowledge of DK with as many people as possible.  Pushing the boundaries, and furthering what is possible within the realms of this addictive and beautiful technique.

His first published design was in Knit Now! Magazine, and in 2015, he was approached by Vogue Knitting Magazine in the USA to design a DK Shawl for their Fall 2015 issue.

Nathan hosts a very popular knitting podcast on YouTube, and particularly champions male knitters.  His YouTube channel also has tutorials for the many and varied techniques involved in knitting his patterns, and Nathan is dedicated to making these tutorials as friendly and as easy to understand as possible.

Nathan has been teaching double knitting classes since 2014, and enjoys nothing more than seeing that lightbulb moment, when someone’s brain clicks, and he knows that a new DK’er has been born.

Taking a class with Nathan is not the same as sitting at home watching one of his tutorials. He has a boundless enthusiasm for the subject and limitless patience with the process.  Nathan gives the kind of teaching that just can’t be found anywhere else.  He makes each knitter feel like that are being taught in a one-to-one session, regardless of the size of the class.

Nathan will be leading two workshops at Yarningham 2018.  Demystifying Double Knitting and Shaping: The Future of Double Knitting.  For more information on Nathan’s workshops and to book a place, please visit our website.
