Pru Raymond’s SALA Festival Exhibition at Yarn Trader challenges the viewers to consider knitting as an art form. The knitter is driven by the same urge to create as any painter, sculptor or ceramicist.
Knitting is a form of textile or fibre art. Every knitter’s creations are uniquely wrought due to their unique physiology, yarn choice, needle choice, and other design choices they make. Even working from a pattern with the intention of recreating it, it is more akin to a still life painting than a facsimile. The knitters hands are indelibly imprinted.
My exhibition, A Woman’s Work is Never (Un)Done, supported by Yarn Trader and the City of Port Adelaide Enfield runs 20-27 August 2022. There are a couple of workshops, a social event and a 4 day knitting marathon/ artist demonstration/ open studio/ performance art.
