Sivia Harding, guest instructor

We are pleased to announce that our special guest instructor for Frolic 2015 will be Sivia Harding.

Sivia learned to knit in 2000 and has been churning out patterns since 2003.  Her work has appeared in publication under her own name and has been featured in the Twist Collective online magazine, knitty.com, various subscription clubs and many knitting books.  Her self-published designs are found on Ravelry and her website www.siviaharding.com.

One of her specialties is knitting with beads.  Sivia loves the magical effects achieved when beads are combined with lace, cables and other textural elements.  Sivia considers herself a knitting mentor.  She loves to inspire experiment outside the realm of the original technique or project which often leads to the student developing highly original ideas of their own.  She offers workshops on knitting with beads, designing shawls, exploring mobius, socks and more.
