About The Teacher - Daniela Wood

Daniela has spent her life amongst textiles. Having been a printer, a weaver and now a knitter she has begun to turn her designs into garment and accessory patterns. Infused with colour and pattern, her designs are intended to be pleasurable knits, challenging but relaxing and, above all, lovely to wear.

Daniela’s classes focus on knitting as a contemporary craft with a nod to its age-old heritage. She uses natural yarns, produced and dyed in the UK and is an avid supporter of independent yarn producers.
