with Brandon Mably
The Magic Ball / Persian Poppy Design
October 28, 2015
900 to 400
Enjoy a one day creative knitting workshop with Brandon Mably from the Kaffe Fassett Design Studio. This course inspires knitters to sharpen their observation of color by working with a range of light and dark colors in contrasting tones. The experience is designed to give knitters the confidence to use their own personal color scheme in any of their own designs in the future....
Participants will work on the classic Persian Poppy design. Brandon will also demonstrate the method of carrying yarn in Fair Isle and intarsia knitting; working with attendees as they apply these techniques to their own knitting.
Participants should know how to knit and purl, however, only the basic stockinette stitch will be used in the workshop.
Brandon's hugely popular workshops consist of equal parts education, entertainment and good ole fun! We expect to fill up quickly so don't miss the chance to join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity!

Brandon Mably freely admits that he was a total disaster at school and found it difficult to settle to one hobby or interest as a child. However his love of colour and design always remained a constant throughout his young life and he has vivid memories of the pink plastic needles he used during knitting lessons at school. For over a decade, Brandon has been the Studio Manager of Kaffe Fassett Studio in London England, and has worked closely with Kaffe in the design, creation, and execution of knitwear, tapestry, patchwork, mosaic, and mixed media artwork. While working side by side with Kaffe, Brandon has honed his unique style of bold design and vibrant colour.
Brandon designs knitwear patterns for Vogue Knitting and Rowan Yarns, and leads workshops in knitwear design and use of colour throughout the world. He travels throughout the world teaching workshops, learning from indigenous design styles, and finding inspiration from the people and communities he visits.
“Most people have buried within them a sense of colour and design.” ~ Brandon Mably ~
