About me

I am a designer, maker and researcher and writer, active in the field of fashion and sustainability.

Keep & Share is my experimental knitwear label and open craft practice, which I founded in 2004. While I started out creating collections of 'craft fashion' knitwear, my work has evolved to include supporting other people's making, creating experimental pieces for exhibition, academic research and writing.

Today, I use Keep & Share as a banner for all of my design, making and research work. While I occasionally make knitwear to commission for individual customers from the Keep & Share archive, I am now mainly engaged in academic research and teaching. This still involves plenty of making. I am a Senior Lecturer in Design, Culture and Context at Nottingham Trent University.
