Laura Nelkin – Knitwear Designer and Fiber Artist
Handweavers Guild of Boulder
February 2023 Day Program
Laura Nelkin is a prolific and innovative knitwear designer and pattern maker. She is known for her complex but accessible designs that challenge knitters to think about their stitches in a new way.
Taking inspiration from her home in the gorges Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York, Laura loves incorporating elements into her designs that reference the landscape around her. She is an expert on knitting with beads and has taught many how to use beads in their knitting.
