Empowering Women Entrepreneur Workshop (EW)², “All you knit is love” is a free knitting training program to improve the lives of women through needles and yarns organised by our mother company Fortlandic.
Fortlandic was founded with dedication to create sustainable employment to the Nepali community and showcase their expertise in producing high quality products to enthusiasts around the world. The company currently imports hand knitted woolen products and other outdoor apparel made in Nepal and supports women empowerment and employs artisans around Kathmandu Valley.
In the continuous effort of providing meaningful employment and raising the standard of living for those in need, Fortlandic along with Khumbu Foundation, a USA based Non-Profit Organization is arranging a 2-day knitting training course to those who seeks to learn the craft in Dallu Awas, Kathmandu, Nepal.
All the required materials and pattern will be provided by the trainers.
Explain how to choose the correct yarn and needle for the particular project.
Learn the fundamentals of knitting; how to cast on, the knit and purl stitches and how to bind off.
Continue to practice and get comfortable with these steps.
Create a simple design for a scarf.
Learn how to bind and finish the scarf.
**the scarf created might not be actual size since it takes a day or two for expert knitters to make one**
Upon completion of the course, the trainees will have basic knowledge and skill to create simple desing and knit own their own. With practice and dedication, the trainees should be able to move on the bigger projects and complex patterns and become knitters for life.
If you will like to support for this cause, please.
