Personal profile

My research broadly explores the ‘Geographies of Making’ – thinking about contemporary impulses to make, mend and create and the communities that both sustain and develop these creative practices. I am interested in theories of materiality, embodiment, and production, consumption and labour.

My PhD research focused on knitting and spaces of amateur creativity. This included knitting as a form of craft consumption exploring event and festival spaces focused on textile making; community groups and the quiet politics of making things together, and knitting as ‘subversive’ practice, notably yarnbombing (knitted graffiti). I was supervised by Professor Phil Crang and advised by Dr Harriet Hawkins.
