Alison Ellen

In this unusual year, I will be exhibiting on my own at Jeffreys Cottage. I will be showing a new collection of knitwear in an open barn in the front garden, with additional display of design processes and yarn dyeing. I have a range of jackets, jumpers and waistcoats with colours and textures inspired by the garden, and welcome people to try them on. I also run workshops in knitting design for textile groups in the UK and abroad, and my knitting books are available to buy.

Alison Ellen

Textiles, Knitting and Dyeing

My studio is full of colour: yarn dyeing, knitting in progress, books, and knitwear for sale. Ideas for colours and textures often come from the surrounding garden and landscape, and I have a range of designs to suit different individuals. I design jackets, jumpers, waistcoats and hats, with interest in structure and drape, as well as colour and texture, and welcome people to try them on! I also run workshops in knitting design in the UK and abroad, teaching short courses at West Dean College, and have had published four books on designing in knitting.

See the artist's SAOS Member web page for more.

Alison Ellen welcomes visitors all year round by appointment.
