    • Program: Landscape Lace Knit Garden Trellis: From Inspiration to Actuality
      • Program Description: How the photograph of a Shetland Islander’s knit lace fence inspired me to spend uncountable hours figuring out how to translate the idea of knit lace in a large rural garden, to practical application in an urban setting.
      • Biographical Information: Franki Franklin comes from a people with smart hands and curious minds who make and fix things. In childhood she learned the rudiments of embroidery, crochet, sewing, and hand quilting. Her mother, grandmothers, and great-uncle were masters at needlework. At age 10 Franki taught herself to knit, and in the early 1990s she started knitting lace. The structural intricacies and possibilities of knit lace continue to fascinate her, so she continues to futz around with it.

You’ll see samples of Tunisian Crochet that highlight how this technique works with color. She’ll discuss the similarities and differences between Tunisian crochet, traditional crochet and knitting.
      • Biographical Information: Wynne Reynolds is a mixed media artist. Her most recent show, FLUX, at Edge Galley in Denver, was a marriage of fiber and hardware. Incorporating her skills in fiber art and DYI, Wynne created works highlighting the contrast of hard and soft. She teaches needle felting and Tunisian crochet at Fancy Crafts and other Denver venues. Wynne was recently featured in an article about needle felting by the Associated Press that was picked up by news outlets in the U.S. and Canada, including Home and Garden and The Denver Post.
