Custom screenprinted tent by Anthony Chiappin for Nikki Gabriel‘s knitting construction workshops in Sydney this weekend!

Do you know what this is? It’s a knitting tent! Purpose built, and custom screenprinted for Nikki Gabriel‘s inspired ‘Construction Knitting Workshop’ in Sydney this Friday, Saturday and Sunday as part of Sydney Design! This brilliant little temporary structure was designed and hand-printed by Nikki’s very clever fella, illustrator / designer Anthony Chiappin. 10 x husband brownie points right there, Anthony.

I can’t think of a better place to knit, can you?  This magical little tent will be pitched at Sydney’s Powerhouse museum this weekend, and here Nikki will personally be taking small workshop groups through the basics of knitting her brilliant construction patterns!   The workshops go for 3 hrs and cost $80.00 per person.  All workshop attendees will also receive a limited edition ‘Workshop Kit’ – a gorgeous screenprinted bag, Nikki Gabriel handspun wool and knitting patterns.

IF YOU ARE IN SYDNEY you should totally sign up to meet Nikki and hang out in her super cool tent this weekend!  BUT, if, like me, you are not in Sydney, don’t fret – you can still win one of Nikki’s fabulous Workshop Kits right here! PLUS Nikki has thrown in an extra gift just for us – a set of her exquisite ebony knitting needles!
