WIRED OPEN LABS 2019: CHUNKY KNITTING - INFINITY SCARF
hero
  • AFTER TWO SOLD OUT 2018 WORKSHOPS The WIRED Lab WELCOMES
    SAMANTHA LONGMORE FROM OHHBULLDUST BACK
    TO THE WIRED OPEN LABS WORKSHOP SERIES 2019

  • Learn to knit like Samantha from Ohhbulldust, and take home your own handmade chunky woollen infinity scarf.
  •  

  • KNIT LIKE OHHBULLDUST
    This workshop offers you and your friends a chance to learn a little or a lot about Australian merino wool, its qualities and how to turn a bunch of of felted wool yarn into a masterpiece!

  • Sam will educate and teach you skills to further progress your knitting, give you wonderful memories, and the chance to say, “yep I made that”. 
    And the best part - no knitting experience needed!
  • Ohhbulldust was created to tackle mental health issues and release creative juices, deliver a feeling of accomplishment, and to work with one of our country's best fibres.
    You’ll learn how to knit using a technique created to suit Samantha's ability, and you’ll take home with you a finished chunky knit infinity scarf.
  • A life changing accident & my rehabilitation would be my life - almost 4 years on (still early days so I’m told) in a mental slump and physical stand still, I used my creative skills, frustration and drive to get busy! One day, after a lot of trial and error, I invented my very own large-scale knitting method. I incorporated my love of the land and tracked down some beautiful Australian merino wool, taught myself to dye & felt the wool on a larger scale and off I went. Ohhbulldust was born and generating a following.

    It’s been my saviour keeping my mind constantly busy, getting me out meeting new, creative and influential people.
    I look forward to meeting you as part of this new chapter of the Ohhbulldust journey!

    ABOUT SAMANTHA

    Here’s a bit about myself and how Ohhbulldust came to be.
    I love everything agriculture. I spent many years from the age of about 5 out in the paddocks, riding my motor bike, fox shooting, or helping the farmers my father worked for with odd jobs here and there. I didn’t come from a farming background, but I LOVED it.

    Skip ahead 10 years and I was working on a friend’s farm and at a night club, saving up to head to my choice of career in the army, when driving home from work super early one morning I was involved in a double MVA resulting in losing the use of my right-hand side. From my collar bone to my toe (hemiplegic) & refined to a wheelchair. It was over, I thought.

    In this 2.5 hour workshop you will learn:

  • About Australian merino wool, its qualities and how to turn a bunch of felted wool yarn into a masterpiece;
    How to knit using a technique especially created by Samantha Longmore; and
  • Skills to further expand your knitting ability.
