Felicity Ford is the brains behind KNITSONIK and we were delighted to welcome her to the Kennet Valley Guild as our Speaker.
Felicity's talk was creatively inspiring. We were enthralled to hear about Felicity's knitted work and art installations, which have included knitted covers for a
collection of suspended speakers which play sounds that represent a sense of place.
Sound recordings are a vital part Felicity's creative thinking. She is deeply connected to the history of her craft and to the modern interpretation of motifs and techniques from traditional fairisle stitch paterns.
Felicity's stranded colourwork includes representations of subjects found in natural and urban settings.
