Donations Make Things Happen!
Thanks to a generous grant awarded by a private family foundation in the USA, we are delighted to announce that we have hired an additional instructor for the machine knitting program at Hogares Club Michin!
Norma Lopez is a mixed media designer and instructor at “Taller Cinco” Textile College n Bogotá . Her expertise lies in creating innovative contemporary designs with modern materials . Ten students have been selected to train with her twice a week in our machine knitting studio . These advanced knitters may go on to become apprentice knitwear designers: the sky’s the limit.
Professor Norma has begun her series of classes by introducing the machine knitting students to color and design theory. This is a whole new world for the kids and for Dora, our instructor. Their – and our – imaginations will soar ! We can’t wait to see how these classes impact the program.
Without donations from supporters like you, we would not be able to keep our basic machine knitting instructional program going. Without special support from our foundation grant, we would not be able to provide additional training.
