Start the course by getting to know designer and textile artist Flor Samoilenco, who specializes in intarsia crochet. She tells you about her personal and professional journey and shares her influences, before explaining the possibilities of drawing with wool with this course.

Explore the intarsia technique, its characteristics, seeing how it allows you to create drawings. Take your first steps into crochet by learning the basic stitches to create your tapestry. Then, see how to make the color changes in your stitches.

Create your own design, starting with a mood board to find inspiration. Do your sketch and transform it into a diagram for crochet (you can create it digitally with Figma, Adobe Illustrator, or Photoshop if you wish). Select your colors to create the ideal color palette with Flor’s advice.

Time to crochet! Apply all your newfound knowledge to create your intarsia crochet piece. Flor guides you through the techniques to create a modern design with abstract shapes to see each step of the intarsia technique and combine with tapestry crochet to create more detailed sections.

Understand all the steps you need to finish Flor’s design or create your own until you get started with the finishing touches.

Lastly, see how to customize your crochet piece and transform them into unique decorative items. Learn how to care for your piece to keep it looking as vibrant as when it’s newly made.

What is this course's project?

Create a modern and vibrant tapestry using the intarsia crochet technique, of 25 cm by 45 cm approximately. Create a base and create the finishes with crochet, leaving it ready to hang on your wall.
