This project was conceived as the epilogue of the unrealized Hespeler Public Library Textile Design. Big Knitting: Landscape Section is a large hand knit drapery that is made of reclaimed and new fabric that is dyed, torn, and knit to depict an imagined, but familiar, landscape. Lush rolling hills, forest in the distance, a sprinkling of coloured flowers, the earth and bedrock that lies below us.
