The World of ARNE & CARLOS: Finding Inspiration for Design

Scandinavian designers ARNE & CARLOS have gained a passionate international following, not only through their collaborations with well-known names such as Comme des Garçons, Urban Outfitters, Dale of Norway, Regia and Rowan, but also their 10 bestselling books, numerous online tutorials, and their top-rated podcast, "Sit and Knit for a Bit" on YouTube.

It is in their books and videos that we are warmly welcomed into their vibrant, colourful, creative world, which is based in a renovated train station in the Valdres region of Norway north of Oslo. In the comfort of their inspiring home, we see glimpses of their eclectic collections of memorabilia and the rich variety of materials and patterns that surround them. Coupled with the beauty of the scenic natural world outside, these blend to spark their ever-active imaginations and are the inspirations for their hugely popular handcraft designs. They strive to reflect their enthusiasm for finding new ways to value the old, as well as their commitment to developing innovative ideas that are wholly their own.

In this engaging lecture, ARNE & CARLOS speak frankly about the way they live, and how every one of us can be inspired by the everyday things that surround us. Learn how to create fabulous, unique knitting and crochet designs, as well as other projects, using their unique lifestyle techniques, and walk away energized and ready to bring your own original ideas to life.

The lecture will include time at the end for audience questions and meet-and-greet.
