November’s Anster Nicht In

An Exploration of the Gansey
As a lifelong knitter with a special interest in Gansey knitting, Di Gilpin will be taking a journey through the history and special knitting details of these fascinating garments. There is a huge story to tell and a lot of history to discover: tensions, stitch counts, patterns, construction details, yarns, colours and motifs. Di will share these special details and qualities with us on the evening and show how she uses them in her fashion work internationally.  Di is Creative Director of Di Gilpin Ltd, specialising in hand knitting, pattern writing and design.

We hope to see you there!
