Find out more about the special commissions and project contributions from Dwynwen at Loch Ness Knitting
In Autumn 2018 Gordonstoun school felled two historic oak trees. Working in partnership with the school Dwynwen visited the campus and collected bark, leaves, acorns and lichens from the felling. Dwynwen then spent the Winter months transforming these into dye and eventually into a collection of limited edition items. The bespoke collection of hats, wraps and sweaters will then be sold by the school to raise money for the Mighty Acorns Scholarships project.
If you have a waste opportunity project to discuss with Loch Ness Knitting please contact Dwynwen by email.
The Aural Textiles project was led by the Glasgow School of Art - Innovation School and funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. The aim of the project was to inspire design using sounds of the Scottish landscape.
Dwynwen used sounds recorded by Loch Ness to inspire textured knits and unusual stranded patterns, made using sustainable naturally dyed yarn.
