For October craft month we have knitter Alison Ellen’s wonderful work for sale in our shop.
Having trained in constructed textiles at UCA, Farnham, Alison Ellen has been designing knitwear for over 30 years, using the flexible structure of knitting and the way different stitch combinations shape the fabric. She enjoyes designing for different body-shapes, allowing the structure of the fabric itself and the three-dimensional form of the garment to emerge seamlessly together. Inspiration often comes from colours in landscape, gardens and natural forms.
She teaches in the UK and internationally, is listed on the Crafts Council directory, and has published 4 books on the subject.
