UNMADE – KNITTING TECHNOLOGY
Ben Jones, Kirsty Emery and Hal Watts are throwing the knitting rulebook out the window with their technology-driven knitting techniques. We’ve got to admit we’ve got no clue how the hell they do it, but they’ve somehow managed to combine 3-D printing techniques with industrial knitting, allowing them to essentially ‘print out’ garments in knit. Welcome to the future!

The past two Saturdays our B has been busy over at Morley College in Lambeth, London working on her fingertip callouses at their Tailoring Masterclass for Surface & Structure. Run by Daniel Kinne of A La Disposition, the classes will continue in the new year to focus on setting on collars and sleeve/shoulders and are a great introduction to the subject as well as being valuable for those wanting a refresher.
