Exploring Marls and Color: A workshop with Cecelia Campochiaro - August 6th and August 8th

Availability: In stock (1)

Two-90 minute sessions on Zoom
Thursday, August 6th and Saturday August 8th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Join Cecelia Campochiaro in this 2-part virtual class on using marls as a kind of color work.  Learn how to design and make beautiful and complex marled fabrics from fine yarn and understand the process of choosing yarns and colors to create pieces with sequences of marls. So many of us struggle with selecting the right color combinations for our work but Cecelia will help to demystify the process and teach you how to combine colors. Her book, Making Marls, is a stunning study of color and the backdrop for this class.

The first session is a presentation and the second is a color exploration using micro-swatches that you will knit in between the two sessions. The 2-4 hours of knitting is easy enough to do while watching a show or being social. We will send a kit of yarn prior to the class for this purpose. We love having Cecelia at the shop and so look forward to her Zoom workshop!

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Concepts involved in making marls
  • Marl making logistics
  • How to determine the right gauge for a marl
  • How to work with many colors and to select pleasing marl sequences

Skill Level: Students must be able to knit, purl, cast-on, bind-off, increase and decrease.


  • Kit of yarn for making marls will be sent to you my Monarch before the class
  • US 5 or 6 needles
  • A tray or surface with a white background (can be a cloth) for viewing and photographing micro-swatches
  • Very Optional: a light suitable for color-work so they can share or show their work, such as a Stella Lamp.
  • Handout sent to you from Cecelia prior to the first session. Please note the homework should be done after the first session.
