Every month we give one stall away to students and this month it’s the turn of the fabulous Night Knitters – Fiona, Alice and Amy from the Bath School of Art and Design. Here’s a little bit about them in their own words.
While we’re not busy doing uni work, we’re rummaging through charity shops, and are always on the hunt for ideas and inspiration for our online shop, ‘Night Knitters’. We are self taught knitters (the name ‘Night Knitters’ came from teaching ourselves to knit one evening) but also sew, print and photograph, all of which help our shop to grow.
We are lucky enough to be studying at Bath School of Art and Design, and find the antique shops, music venues, and small, independent art galleries around Bath and Bristol so exciting, and keeps our ideas fresh and original.
We sell homemade goodies, including covered notebooks, earrings, mug jumpers, cafetiere cosies, knitted bunting and lots more.
Amy has inventive and original ideas when it comes to illustration and image making, and has developed a distinctive style through her Graphic Communication course.
Fiona is our leading lady when it comes to knitting. She studies Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors and is always inventing new ideas for Night Knitters.
Alice studies Fine Art and Textiles, which gives her a range of mediums to work with.
