Amy Bant

MA work

Drawing has become an increasingly important part of my work. This collection focuses mainly on the shape, texture and expressive nature of birds which influenced the use of mohair, fringing and embellishment. My work is an experimental combination of knitting techniques and hand-finished details to develop couture fabrics that reflect the spontaneous energy of my drawings.
