|Knitting proves an art form
The days when we all wore hand-knitted garments seem a long distant memory. Few people have the time to undertake the painstaking work required to create the “real thing” and the fact that we can buy machine-made knitwear so cheaply is no great encouragement to take up the needles.
But one local artist has taken on the mantle of producing quality knitwear on a commission basis.
The word artist is carefully used. Stella Melhuish from Redhill has already had her work displayed in exhibitions at Wedmore and Wrington: her work is also on permanent display at Julie Kingcott’s craft studio. Her creations combine fashion and real individuality.
