Tracey Doxey brings her knitting explorations and travels to this workshop as she teaches colour blending techniques for Fair Isle knitting projects.
In 2020, Doxey moved to Shetland, Scotland, where she purchased a 200-year-old croft, which inspired a story and became a pattern titled, Dear Susan. She spent a year on the island writing and creating new knitting designs and teaching online colour blending workshops.
Doxey pays homage to the island and the women who previously lived there through her site specific work in Shetland’s abandoned croft houses, writings and knitting creations.
Doxey has more than 40 years of knitting experience and a master’s degree from Nottingham Trent University.
