Machine Knitting II

It was so perfect to take this class immediately following Machine Knitting 1. We built on everything we learned to learn fully fashioned decreases, lace, cables, jacquard, i-cord, tuck stitches, using punch cards, short rows, and more. We ended by incorporating our learnings into a mini fully fashioned sweater where we also learned how to add on a neckline to a sweater using the machine. Marian was more than willing to cater to our specific needs - for example I had to miss the last half of class on the last day so she made sure I could finish my project by offering for me to come for part of our lunch break and offering her extra assistance. Very happy with the hands on learning and special attention given to each student in this class! It was just what I was looking for to propel me into going off on my own in my machine knitting journey with confidence.

Loved this course! Marian is amazing - she has been teaching for over 30 years at FIT and knows the machines in and out, there is nothing she can't do or fix. The facilities at FIT are also awe-inspiring, from day 1 I was inspired to commit to learning machine knitting. In this course we learned a lot and came out with an adult sweater which exceeded my expectations for the class. I signed up for the 2nd level course immediately following this one which has been just as good. As a long time hand-knitter, this course has opened up a whole new world of what I can create with yarn.

Live Fashion Drawing and Moodboard Creation

If you follow the Fashion Illustrator Steven Broadway then you know that he offers these live model practice sessions for illustrators to strengthen their skills. All skill levels are accommodated as he offers drawing introductions for newbies and guides veteran artist to strengthen their skill. Broadway usually has 2 - 3 live models with an array of fashion clothing to help ignite your illustrating imagination. The class is now offered in 3 4-hour sessions in the evening. It is non-stop drawing. The whole block is dedicated to drawing. Time goes by so quickly you don't feel the 4 hours. There is a regular set of attendees so the class is always energized and ready to draw for the entire duration. Work is shared at the end. This is a great way to get drawing and technique ideas. I have not attended a session that actually goes over the mood boards. I have the supplies just incase. But I am content with just drawing. If you have taken Professor Broadway's Fashion and Accessory Illustration courses this live model practice is your next step development. The price has doubled but this is due to tuition increase by FIT. I purposefully save up so I can attend. Its worth it.

Always love taking the class because of the instructor. I just did not like that the course doubled the price abruptly and has the same amount of classes. There should be 1 more session added.
