Knotless netting is a simple technique that allows artists to encapsulate an object so that it can be attached to a fiber piece. With netting, a rock can become the centerpiece pendant in a necklace, a china plate takes its place in a wall-hanging and a tin toy can be part of a garment. What’s more, netting is easy to learn, fun and easy to do and it takes minimal equipment – only a needle and cord.
Bring your lunch to this free workshop and learn to net a rock without the use of wire or metal.
In view of the climate in Sweden, it was common to make knotless mittens, also called sewn mittens. Socks were also made with this technique, and in old times filter cloths used for screening milk. There were a number of names for knotless knitting in different dialects around Sweden.
