The Curiosity Cabinet of Knitting Stitches. I will present my new show at Prick Your Finger, Bethnal Green, London, in February 2013; the Private View is on Friday, 15 February.
The Curiosity Cabinet of Knitting Stitches tries to give a voice to some of the more esoteric knitting stitches, by presenting a collection of knitted swatches as a natural history collection of yore. Similar to a curiosity cabinet, the collection of swatches will be presented in categories and enable the viewer to examine them up close, thus providing a sense of wonder and enlightenment. The exhibition will be accompagnied by a series of short workshops, encouraging knitters to try some of these techniques themselves.
Late June 2012, I presented The Visible Mending Programme at Mend*RS, the first mending research symposium in the UK.
In September 2012, I presented a paper on The Curiosity Cabinet of Knitting Stitches at the In The Loop 3 conference in Winchester.
