Hand and machine knitting

For anyone who would like an inspiring week of knitting. Experienced or non-experienced knitters are welcome. You do not need much previous knowledge; if you can knit by hand (setting up and edging, knit right and reverse) this week is perfect for you.

No knowledge of dyeing and machine knitting is necessary, as we will teach you some basic techniques. But if you can already do that, that's included and you can quickly move on.


A unique combination in one summer knitting week of yarn dyeing and its application in knitted fabrics.

Participants will learn the basics of dyeing and machine knitting. Then they move on to more specialized dyeing and knitting techniques. During the knitting week, you will constantly switch between dye baths and knitting machines so that you can see the results of your own dyed yarns directly in various knitting stitches.

The possibilities of dyeing yarns and its immediate effect in knitting through the knitting machine are enormous. It is a quick way of working.

Students will go home full of inspiration and new ideas with a knitted sample book of dyeing techniques.

We take you on a voyage of discovery through the city of Maastricht, to places you don't know yet but which make this historic city so colorful.

We promise you an energetic week full of creativity, new techniques, insights and ideas!

During the excursions we will show you the colors and textures of the city. We teach you to look in a different way. We translate what you see into knitting stitches, textures and colors.

You go home with a whole pile of knitted samples. This can then form the basis for further ideas that you can develop at home, for example, or incorporate into a knitted garment.
