Traditional Kofte Winter Courses - Planning Guides, Discount Code, Open Bandweaving Course + Update!
Greetings from the farm!
After many requests, my Bandweaving Course - registration is OPEN once again.
If you or someone you know, is or has been, interested in joining my beginner Bandweaving Course Module 1 - You can register your participation HERE
Once you are registered, I will support you to begin and to acclimate yourself into the course content and our bandweaving community.
Winter Traditional Garment Courses
In preparation for the upcoming Winter Kofte Courses, which begin in mid to late January, I have created planning guides for your convenience.
I have also secured a 20% discount for the Rauma Finullgarn needed for each Traditional garment selected for the courses. Coupon code: wintercoursewool
Please note: Allowing for personal options with regard to course yarn kits and/or using stash wool, my course fees will increase slightly this winter to keep my course offerings sustainable.
Lifting the usual yarn kit purchase requirement, which is the common practice here in Norway.
However, I do rely heavily on registration fees, the wool purchased within my farm shop and sponsorships to offer these month long, extended courses with unlimited support to keep my farm wheel going.
So, I appreciate very much your support of my work here on the farm and my farm shop.
It is my hope that you find exceptional value, support and enrichment from my offerings in return for your patronage.
Tusen hjertelig takk!
Advanced Winter Kofte Course:
Choice #3 was the Dale Kofte pictured above. I am still undecided about offering this third option. Please do leave a comment below if you have any contributing thoughts.
The other choices all received very low vote percentages and are not worth mentioning.
Kofte Course 3+
This is a beginner and intermediate course offering.
Within this course we will combine historic techniques and modern design!
Agnes Kofte - this is an individual course pattern. The pattern will be offered at a discount, sponsoured by the designer Wiola for all participants.
Within the planning guide, I have substituted the original waste/stash yarn colours used by the designer, with the complementary Rauma Finullgarn colours.
With this kofte, what is important is to think about the main colour you would like to knit.
Then put together an analogus colour palette of complementary colours.
This is how this kofte was designed and is a signature of Wiola designs.
If you are interested in knitting the Rundt i Dalen kofte... (an intermediate level kofte)
You can purchase the discounted course book HERE
Books purchased before Sunday, November 21st will be signed by the designer.
See previous posts for the fun "prize" signature excitement for 3 lucky winners.
Please note! Due to the discount negotiations for the book and the shipping, this book must be purchased on its own and cannot be purchased in combination with any other items within my farm shop.
