Fiber Artist Freddie Robbins Explores the Human Condition

Fiber Artist Freddie Robbins Explores the Human Condition

“Knitting comes with many preconceived expectations, it is ripe for subversion. Knitting is a common art. Everyone has some form of relationship with it. Even if they don’t like it people aren’t repulsed or intimidated by knitting. They come to it with all guards down, expecting it to be gentle, homely and cosy. It is the perfect medium to talk about difficult issues.”
