Have you ever thought about taking up knitting? No? Does knitting with wool sound old-fashioned? Grandmotherly? Passé?

If you do, you should learn how to knit metal.

Now.

Doris Maninger is the wonderful co-founder of Alchimia (together with the other wonderful Lucia Massei) and her workshop “Textile techniques in metal” teaches you how to knit metal.

“Introduction to free interlacing (technique developed in Alchimia), preparation of the forms to be covered by the interlaced wire, finishing of the created piece;

Introduction to crochet, basic stitches, working in three dimensions, free experimentation, inventing your own stitches, finishing techniques.”
