Saturday 19th June: Donna Wilson/ Supermarket Sarah - report by Emily Beard
Report by Emily Beard:
The collaborative wall between textile aficianado Donna Wilson and Supermarket Sarah had them both literally playing 'House' together!
Donna Wilson began knitting during a MA at Grays School for Art. She constructs everything from cake cosies to glasses and sweater-wearing cermaic dogs, all in a wonky yet lovable signature style. Each of Donna's pieces marries practicality and sustainability with modernity of design. This off kilter style complements Supermarket Sarah's penchant for all things kitch and one of a kind, and slightly odd.
Donna has had her work exhibited at ‘Knit 2 together’, and has been featured in national magazines, newspapers and on TV channels such as MTV. Each piece she creates is hand made and one of a kind.
She credits her Scottish countryside upbringing for the textures and organic fabrics (her main source is lamb wool) she utilises in her pieces.
