Knitting is…experimental

When

Cost

Free

During the exhibition Knitting is… experimental, the art space becomes both studio and exhibition space where artist-researcher Christine Wiltshier, (gently) subverts the ordered complexity and conventional views of hand knitting.

Following ready-made knitting instructions, Christine creates knitted sculptures, print works and performative making installations that embrace and make visible randomly occurring knots, tangles and mistakes in her knitting process.

Throughout the exhibition, Christine will be making in the art space, and inviting visitors to join her in experimenting with hand knitting, through a series of participatory artworks entitled, Knit Play: texture + tools + tension.
