In August 2014, to celebrate the ten year anniversary of Keep & Share, I produced a 16-page pamphlet in which I look back at the development and evolution of my work. The printed version of the pamphlet was produced in a limited edition of 100 copies. An interactive version is also available to download.
Knowledge Exchange in Design is an AHRC-funded project led by Birmingham Institute of Art and Design. The project brings together research students and early career researchers with partners from a range of organisations to work on a short, focused research project. The film profiles four projects, including my research residency at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.

"To round up our “Working with Wool” phase of WOVEMBER and to set the scene for the last and final theme for our month-long celebration – “Wearing Wool” – we have a Q&A with the founder of Keep & Share, Amy Twigger Holroyd."
'With her company, Keep & Share, knitwear designer Amy Twigger Holroyd puts ethics first. We caught up with her to hear.'
Apprenticeships in the Making [film]
Apprenticeships in the Making worked with young people who are not in education, employment or training, to discover and challenge their perceptions of craft and to introduce them to potential pathways within the sector. I hosted two apprentices for a week's knitting at my studio, and this experience is documented in the film. Apprenticeships in the Making was an action research project, produced in partnership between Craftspace and mac birmingham, as part of the touring exhibition, Made in the Middle.
