Knitting as political art! The University of Minnesota is offering a week long course featuring experimentation in using knitting in unconventional ways to make your political point. Could be really interesting!
Starts Sunday, June 13, and ends Friday, June 18 on the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus.
Instructor: Adrienne Sloane
Within the framework of its recent renaissance, knitting has been widely used not only as a creative medium, but also as a form of political art. If you are interested in experimenting with non-traditional materials, using knit in unconventional ways, and exploring sculptural knitting as an expressive art form, this workshop is for you!
All Split Rock offerings foster hands-on learning and allow for significant one-to-one contact between participant and instructor. Workshops/retreats may be taken for undergraduate or graduate credit. On-site accommodations and scholarships are available; scholarship deadline is April 19.
