2018 Workshop Tutors : Karie Westermann


Karie Westermann does things with wool & words. She is a designer, teacher & general wool enthusiast. Her work combines her love of storytelling, art and woolly yarns as she is a big believer in knitting never being “just knitting”.


Karie relaxes by doing pub quizzes, biking around Glasgow on her red bike, and dabbling in dress-making. Her latest project, This Thing of Paper, a knitting book inspired by medieval manuscripts and books, was released in November 2017.

Karie will be leading two workshops at Yarningham this year. ¬†Knitting the Landscape and Knitting Hap Shawls. ¬†For more information and to book a place on Karie’s workshops, please visit our website.
