Shetland Keepsakes was a project that researched the history of Fair Isle and Lace knitting. I started to break down the motifs used in Fair Isle designing and lace patterning taking printed studies. I explored ideas around protection, change of form and use and developed Shetland keepsakes. A series of contemporary cast sculptures, window hangings and jewellery art pieces that trap and protect Shetland knitwear remnants.
