About

jen cantwell - knitting

I am a multidisciplinary designer-maker, cutter, stitcher, conceptual knitter, lover of typography and scribbler of lines who is fascinated by the unfiltered bombardment of images, concepts and information that floods my eyes and brain on a daily basis.
My work takes traditional handskills and mixes them with unrelated materials, methods and technologies to make collage based installations, wall pieces and small objects.
This carries forwards into my design practice as an irreverance towards rules and a love of pushing materials and processes to the edges of what I can personally achieve without having to outsource to specialists.
