BA (Hons) Textiles

Megan Sharkey

My practice focuses on creating contemporary knitwear, which utilizes traditional handcrafts, such as lace making, crochet and sprang (thread twisting). For my final collection I have been exploring our reliance on technology in todays society; the world has become connected through virtual networks, but real connections and interactions are diminishing. I enjoy playing with the juxtaposition between our fast, instantaneous society and the slow, traditional thread work that cannot be replicated by a machine.
