KnitPick

I wanted to create not only an installation but a piece of art. I kept with Avoca’s quirky handmade craft design with my own modern and contemporary twist. Just like Avoca I used knitting wool as the main focus for my design. I used various levels of colour ranging from primary to secondary colours. My 3D piece mimics sheep made out of wool and knitting needles. I used wool as leads for the sheep that attached back to a mannequin's hand. For my own modern/ contemporary twist I created a colourful vertical backdrop for my installation.
