craft and applied art

My work is evolving, I want to push the boundaries of knit.  Ideas have come from the strangest places.  I have really enjoyed collaborating with other makers on “Material Connections” exhibition, see example below. We should do more of this as makers.  www.makersguildinwales.org.uk
