Alison Ellen

Having trained in textile design at Surrey Institute of Art and Design, Farnham, and worked with hand printed textiles, Alison began designing and making hand knitwear in 1980. As well as an enjoyment of colour, texture and pattern, Alison explores shaping through the structure of knitting, designing clothes knitted all in one piece with emphasis on construction. Her ideas for textures and colours are sourced from the surrounding countryside, gardens, drawing landscape and visiting museums while traveling. Designs for shapes are influenced sometimes by studies of ethnic dress from around the world, but also from discussions with people trying on the garments, and seeing how different designs work on different people.
