(re)skin: contemporary knitting

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who know how to knit and those who don't.

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who know how to knit and those who don’t. And then there is Alana Clifton-Cunningham. Combining wool with leather, timber and semi precious stones, this Fashion and Textiles lecturer at UTS creates woolly wearables that hover somewhere between fashion, sculpture and bandage-chic. Using a combination of hand and machine knitting techniques, these finely crafted garments prove that wool has burst free from the shackles of multi-coloured scarves and frumpy jumpers. No longer can it be pigeonholed as the sensible yet dowdy winter necessity. Arise, oh wool, and take your seat at the table of cool.

(re)skin: contemporary knitting coincides with Sydney Design 2009 and runs until August 20.
