The Makers

'Another maker whose work I was delighted and amazed by in the WOW show, is Amy Twigger-Holroyd. Her knitted BMW engine and stitch-hacking projects are inspiring examples of knitting as an investigative process. [Stitch-hacking] is an amazing way of reclaiming and adding handmade qualities to bought knitwear, and I loved the subtlety and the meta-data qualities of Amy's hacked sweater, featuring a blown-up version of the inner label on the back, as a charted, hacked design.'

Apprenticeships in the Making [film]
Apprenticeships in the Making worked with young people who are not in education, employment or training, to discover and challenge their perceptions of craft and to introduce them to potential pathways within the sector. I hosted two apprentices for a week's knitting at my studio, and this experience is documented in the film. Apprenticeships in the Making was an action research project, produced in partnership between Craftspace and mac birmingham, as part of the touring exhibition, Made in the Middle.

Review: Made in Clerkenwell - Winter Open Studios at Craft Central 2011
'I spend a little while chatting to Amy Twigger Holroyd, who trades as Keep and Share, an approachable knitwear designer whose work I hope to see a lot more of in the future. Amy has a combination of machine and hand knitted jumpers and scarves, and works on a 'hand feel' basis, meaning that there are a range of UK-produced alpaca, Italian wools and natural materials to choose from. As well as clothing, Amy makes knitting kits, perfect gifts for existing or would-be knitters.'
