Textile Design – Knit.
The inspiration for my project was taken from my flat during Lockdown. Being stuck inside forced me to see the space differently, and appreciate the colours, curation of objects, and comfort. Seeing a sanctuary and not a prison. My process usually begins with a combination of digital and physical collages before translating these onto a single bed domestic knit machine. Lockdown has resulted in increased levels of anxiety and panic, with my work I hope to reassure and comfort those who wear it, to cocoon the wearer and relieve stress.
