The Power of Making

Alison is currently featuring in a video called 'interactive knitting' on the Crafts Council website (filmed by Marc le Galle). Alison recently took her knitting chair into Bath School of Art and Design where she invited passers by to join her in her making - knitting, crocheting and unpicking the yarn she has made from discarded crisp packets - emphasising the fact that this material will be around for a very long time... if not forever. Do you know how much 'yarn' she can make from one packet?!
For viewing go to here and look for her video called 'interactive knitting'. Will try to post the video on the blog here in the next day or two. The V and A are holding an exhibition in September called 'The Power of Making' - for more detail see here
