Invited by Campaign For Wool to create an installation to exhibit in the 'Wool B&B' house to celebrate Wool Week 2016.
The installation is designed to look as if it is a regular breakfast set-up, catering for a variety of tastes and appetites. The piece portrays the luxury of choice and comfort in the western world and hints at the excess that is often taken for granted in a fast paced, immediate society, the irony being each individual knitted piece has taken hours/days to create.
The Wool B&B is designed to promote the benefits of living with wool, where everything from interiors, to art, to fashion is all made from wool. The B&B is located in De Beauvoir town, London, and it will be welcoming the public to the wonderful world of wool between 12th-16th October.

Series of knitted stop frame animations for RSPO. The animations are designed to raise awareness of sustainable Palm Oil. If it is grown sustainably, palm oil production can benefit local communities, and help to protect valuable species and forests. By using sustainable practices, farmers can increase their income by making more palm oil from less land.
Commissioned by Nexus Productions to create 18 woodland characters for Dorset Cereals' first ever TV Commercial. Each puppet is crafted by hand and is made from in 100% British lambs wool. Accessories were made of a variety of materials such as leather, faux fur and jersey.
The 30 second advert is an animated live action hybrid film set in a Dorset woodland. My handmade animals wake up to the sound of Dorset AM - a radio station run by a small blue bird called Mike and a squirrel called Colin.
I worked closely with Director Conor Finnegan and the team at Nexus Productions to bring Conor's characters to life.
