Inspiring Designers – Liz Clark

I’ve recently taken to YouTube to look up tutorials in all manner of artistic pursuits and that led me to looking at what videos exist that talk about design, namely textile and knitwear design.

YouTube being what it is, you start with a few keywords and then fall into a rabbit hole of related content and it was through this that I found the following video.

It shows the studio and work of Liz Clark who is a knitwear designer and printmaker. It’s inspiring as she has a beautiful studio filled with light, but it shows her knitting by hand, machine knitting and printmaking. I love that she can move effortlessly between these different mediums (and that she acknowledges just how different the knit machine is to hand knitting).

I will keep an eye out for more examples of her work. Whilst I couldn’t find her website, I did find a link to where she exhibits and sells her work – Verandah
