Event

Description

Botanically knit is a couture design utilizing digital print in combination with finger knitting in an effort to create a garment focusing on a mix of new technology and the ancient and simple technique of finger knitting. Inspired by images from the Orchid Mania exhibit at the Botanical Gardens the flower design was manipulated in an effort to create a textile where the flowers turned into yarns in an array of colors. Through my current work the knit stitch is a main focus and looking at how the approach to the simplicity of the stitch can be utilized through different perspectives looking at shaping in woven garments, such as this one, as well as scale of the stitch and the visual approach in the design of piece.
