Fair Isle workshop with Hazel Tindall Hazel Tindall was born and brought up in Shetland, watching knitters – six days a week – from the moment she started to focus on movement. In Shetland, she leads workshops during Shetland Wool Week, and for visiting groups including Arena Travel and Celtic Tours.
She has been a tutor at Edinburgh Yarn Festival, Loch Ness Knit Fest, Dornoch Fibre Festival and Craft Cruises. She finds helping knitters overcome their fears about cutting their knitting, choosing colours for Fair Isle and trying more efficient techniques are the most rewarding parts of leading workshops. Hazel prefers to knit with long double pointed needles and a knitting belt and workshop participants are given the opportunity to try using these.
