Part 5 Not single handed! '40 years of comfort' An Orkney Jumper
A plan has been hatching with Sarah Albu for our collaboration as part of Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador 2021 exhibition 'Sensorius'. A very tactile exhibition that was in the planning before covid.Larger than life, these hands are going to be transformed using wool from whats left of my dads 40 year old hand knitted Orkney jumper, then sent to Sarah Albu in Montreal, Quebec Canada, where fabulous things will happen to them.

I've been invited to take part in an exhibition curated by Bruno Vinhas, the gallery director of the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador. 'Sensorius' is to open in August 2021 at their gallery in St.Johns, Newfoundland. The exhibition is themed on accessible tactile work. This Orkney Jumper is at the centre of my new work for the exhibition.
