Tāmaki Makaurau based artist Kat Aucamp shares a kindred approach in their knitwear design 
practice. Knitting without patterns or rigid frameworks, Aucamp champions learning through 
doing and experimenting, rejecting stuffiness and conformity. 

This workshop will demystify knitting as a craft, offering a starting point for queer people wanting to design and make their own original clothing. Aucamp will breakdown the process of knitting a garment from start to finish, using an item of clothing that you already own as a framework. There will also be a focus on how to knit cheaply by sourcing from opshops.

The workshop is open to anyone from the rainbow and takatāpuhi communities of any age. No 
knitting or design experience is required. Experienced knitters are also welcome to attend and 
learn an alternative approach!

All materials will be provided and you will leave with needles and yarn to begin your knitting 

Bring along one item of clothing that you love the shape/ length/ fit of such as a tank top, vest or t-shirt.

Registrations open 15 June.

Park for $2 per hour, to a maximum of $10 on evenings and weekends at the Victoria St car park. Find out more.
