Mixed media (mainly knitting),
Associated catalogue.

A group exhibition curated by Elizabeth Gaston (University of Leeds) including Anita Bruce, Adele Bowden, Kandy Diamond, Elizabeth Gaston, Kate Holdsworth, Joanna Jack, Angela Knipe, Stephanie Potts, Deirdre Nelson, Shetland Mirrie Dancers, and Jane Scott. The featured work ‘challenges the view of knit as a traditional domestic craft’.
My research explores the role of knitting along the route of the British Herring fishery (on which Norfolk features strongly). This was an opportunity to bring together all 100 works for the first time and to disseminate through exhibition and artist’s talk the findings of my research to the local community.
