The Glove Project

About this project

I have been a maker and designer most of my life, and have had several careers as a teacher, maker, designer and academic. Since 2011 I have researched, designed and knitted hand made gloves. Usually, these are for friends, using their colours and themes, but I accept commissions, as I find this format ideal for exploring design ideas. I am happy to teach workshops or give lectures or presentations by invitation. My work has been exhibited in Wales and London. Further exhibitions are planned.
