Traditional Knitting (Mezgimas) Workshop

Learn how to do traditional Lithuanian knitting with skilled knitter and LTFAI member Donna Druchunas. Make a cell phone case or coin purse using traditional Lithuanian color motifs.

Donna looked for information on the knitting of her Lithuanian forebears for years, and finally visited the country to learn what she could. What she learned turned out to be a lot! In this workshop, you will learn: The role of Lithuania in Fair Isle knitting, the evolution of motifs throughout the Baltic states, and the connection of Lithuanian knitting patterns to weaving and other folk art.

Kits are available from the instructor. A detailed materials list will be sent to attendees prior to the workshop.
