Knit Fast Dye Yarn

I really enjoyed my visit to the Knit Fast Dye Yarn Textiles Craft and Apparel Design Exhibition at the Anna Templeton Centre yesterday.

The graduating students had a great display of work. I was impressed with the design / creativity and the amount of work they produced. Have a look!

Wooly Whale Project

This piece was gigantic!

Woven scarves! These are fantastic.

This dress and side curtains were made from woven panels.
The center lace panel (can't see the detail) was made from
scrim. It is hand embroidered using the drawn threads method.
It is a fantastic piece of work.

I was given permission to take photos of some of the work. There were ten students but I didn't get photos of everyone's work. The exhibit was packed with people so it was difficult to get photos.

On Thursday, June 5, from 7 - 9, the Anna Templeton Centre is hosting a Fashion Boutique and Cocktail Party. You can try on all the amazing handmade garments shown on the runway and purchase one or two to add to your wardrobe.

On Saturday, June 14, from 1 - 4, drop down to experience the Secret Garden Secret Kitchen. Experience a special food celebration on closing day with tapas style plates and refreshing summer beverages while you take a last chance to wander through the exhibition. $12

So if you are in the city on those days, drop by.

  1. Thanks for sharing these. Their work is all beautiful but it's hard to get past the absolutely amazing knitted whale. It must have been a real showstopper.
