The large-scale brightly coloured chandelier was hung up in the tree in front of the Cathedral

In:Site 2017 – Day 4 Thursday 7th September

Today at In:Site we were joined by knitting designer Grace Hugh-Jones and jeweller Ellie Taylor.

Grace Hugh-Jones

Grace graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with BA Textiles, specialising in knit.

Her aim today was to create a large-scale brightly coloured chandelier using knit, crochet and macrame. She invited the public to join her in creating her finished piece and welcomed anyone to have a go, teaching basic crochet, knitting and macrame skills to those who wanted it.

Ellie Taylor

Ellie graduated with BA Jewellery-wirework from University for the Creative Arts, Rochester.

Taking inspiration from Birmingham’s architecture Ellie encouraged the public to take a closer look at their surroundings and pick out patterns to create small wire sculptures. These miniature wire sculptures were then displayed on the railings around the Cathedral Square.
