Lucinda Sharp DIRECTOR, Forty South Publishing Pty Ltd. First published July 5
A rare and unique publication celebrating the crossover of art and textiles. While on a four-day walk on Maria Island, artist Prue Hutton committed the colours and textures of the landscape to the pages or her art journal. Inspired by this, Sally Ord of Island Imprints created eight handknit designs.
Immerse yourself in the places that inspired Prue’s artwork and then follow the knitting patterns to recreate Sally’s exquisite garments. The story behind each design unfolds through the journey, explaining how it relates to the history, scenery, animals, or bird life of the island.
Internationally celebrated artist, Raymond Arnold, will launch the book. There’ll be a lucky door prize as well as a display of knits featured in the book.
