OPEN STUDIO | ALICE LEDA PETTIROSSO | 12 NOV
Saturday, 12 November 2016 @ 11am - 4pm | Unit 2/156 Gilmore Rd Queanbeyan
Open Studios offer you a chance to see behind the scenes in the studio of a member design artist of Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre.
At my studio visitors will be able to see where I produce Knitwear, Art To Wear Garments and Accessories under the Nullarbor Nights Knitwear label. My goods are machine- knitted and made from mostly natural fibres such as Merino Wool, Pure Cotton, Linen, Silk, Bamboo and Alpaca, or combinations of yarns, which make unique fabrics unobtainable elsewhere. The fabric is knitted in the workshop and I do the designing and making up of garments as well as any hand- embellishing. The Wool and Silk is also hand- dyed to produce a huge range of colors. I also take commissions. Nullarbor Nights Knitwear has been in production since 1991 and in that time has retailed in galleries worldwide as well as throughout Australia. I have been in my Queanbeyan workshop since 2006.
