Mastersclass with Sandra Backlund

At the end of October I traveled to San Francisco for an international competition and workshop with the Arts of Fashion Foundation. The foundation seeks to inspire creativity and art within fashion by having European designers teach workshops to North American students.

This year I was honored to work with Sandra Backlund for a workshop she ran called "Knit by Heart". Working with a group of 5 designers we hand knit many pieces and collage them together to create a unique knit garment inspired by chess pieces.

Check out this video of the results of the four day workshop.
