Yorkshire Artspace has recently awarded 4 artists a £500 microgrant to realise a creative ambition during 2016 Year of Making.
Congratulations to Heliya Badakhshan, Kandy Diamond, Sharon Mossbeck and Sue Taylor.
All the artists will share their making processes with visitors to Yorkshire Artspace’s Open Studio event in November 2016. But if you can’t wait that long Kandy Diamond, who is using her microgrant to purchase portable knitting machines so she can run classes, is offering classes this summer.
The first knitting machine workshops with Kandy Diamond will be on Saturday 9th July and Saturday 6th August. These one day workshops are perfect for beginners; they will give a grounding in the basics of machine knitting, looking at how the machine works and what it can do. A range of simple techniques will be covered and participants will knit a variety of samples to take away.
