Netherlands based Knitwear Lab is running a new series of knitwear courses, commencing in December this year and running into next summer. Dates are 14-19 December, 19-24 April 2020 and 5-10 July 2021.
“We will do our 6 day ‘crash course’ programming and knitting on the M1plus and the Stoll ADF and 530HP machines. Of course, it is COVID proof,” says Knitwear Lab founder Thijs Verhaar.
Knitwear Lab is also running a series of event on Instagram. “Join us this 12 Thursday November for the first of four exciting Instastories by Knitwear Lab @knitwearlab,” Thijs Verhaar enthuses.
Created especially for designers and knitters, Knitwear Lab highlights the beauty and innovation of knitwear techniques and gives you a tour through its recently extended Lab. “Of course, we will inform you on our new Knitwear courses and share our love for industrial knitwear,” Thijs Verhaar adds.
