Join artist Angela Rossitto to explore experimental knitting techniques and learn about how she uses soft sculpture in her art practice to create large-scale, site-responsive, installations. This is an accessible hands-on-making workshop and artist talk where you can work with Angela to learn new skills through playing with textiles and experimenting with found materials in new and exciting ways!

Dr Angela Rossitto is a contemporary visual artist based in Naarm (Melbourne) who was born in Meanjin (Brisbane). She recently completed her PhD in the School of Art at RMIT.

Her research interests include deep time and materiality within installation/ sculptural and textile practice. She is known for transforming found and ordinary materials with 'hand craft' techniques such as knitting. Her methods are exploratory - driven by experimentation, often site-responsive, and her work is not contained but accumulative.
