Have You Always Wanted To Learn How to Draw?

How to Design Knitwear | Visual Communication is aimed at knitters who know they’re capable of being a designer but sometimes struggle with creative self-expression. Over the course of 6 weeks, you’ll learn drawing and compositional techniques that will help you to articulate your vision. You don’t need to have any previous drawing experience.

Knitwear design in progress. Swatches of knitting surround a pad of paper and scattered pencils.

By the end of the course you’ll have:

  • A solid foundation of drawing techniques
  • A visual library full of mark-making experiments, studies and compositions
  • Increased confidence in your ability to express yourself authentically.

The only materials you’ll need are:

  • A set of drawing pencils, ranging from B to 6B
  • An A3 drawing pad or sketch pad.

A solid foundation of drawing techniques

We begin with pencil control, tonal value and the greyscale so you can tune into your senses of touch and observation.

A visual library of studies and experiments

This leads onto exercises and experimentation with mark-making, perspective, composition and texture.

Confident and authentic self-expression

By the end of the course you’ll have a sense of your drawing style and how to capture your ideas, in your way.
