The Knitting and Stitching Show, Dublin 2015

Yesterday I went to the Knitting and Stitching show at RDS Dublin, and took some pictures. The show is awesome, and enormous! I was impressed with the section dedicated to expositions, innovation and art, as it was much more well cared for and developed than I would thought! The commercial, the 'faire' side of the show it is naturally bigger but anyway they managed to make it  well balanced. 


Shibori Felting


An artist from Kerry, she makes giant ropes and reflects on the maker's work's value...


This philosophical coat is clearly inspired by Deleuze's The Fold...It probably also travels in time.


While these twin dresses are sophisticated and beautiful to watch moving, they also made me think of Cronenberg's Dead Ringers. Not nice.


 Anyway, if you continue with the felting, folding and stitching you eventually get a murales. Stunning.





A simple, yet cool way to say it...


Donegal tweed quilting:





The girl from this felt stall is from Poland!


Katie Moore, a personal exhibition inspired by a lifetime spent in hospitals.





A trove! Japanese area, with kimonos from a private collection and many incredible embroideries on silk... 










Here some works from the exhibition "Reflections"





More funny shops:



That's it, I'd love to upload more pictures but blogger shuts down if I try! 

Have a nice Sunday,

Elettra
