School of Design
Angela Maddock is interested in how we belong and how we build relationships with each other and with objects or things, especially things that are hand made and given to us as gifts. She is a knitter, weaver and writer and also a lecturer in contextual studies and textiles.
Maddock's research investigates the potential of knitting as research methodology. This she does via the simple act of knitting between mother and daughter, a process of discovery that generates new thinking on knitting itself, and also on knitting as conduit between subject and object - a catalyst for thinking on such varied themes as proximity, love, loss and desire.
