BRILLIANT, Installation

Big KnittingVictoria MacLeod (UK)


Hanging from a wall, BRILLIANT winner Victoria McLeod’s jumbo knitting needles and ‘wool’ glowed above a Durham street. 

MacLeod knitted the installation herself, although she needed more space to do it than usual and used a drain pipe instead of needles!

Mixed media textile artist, Victoria, previously exhibited at the DLI, the Captain Cook Museum, Middlesbrough, Hartlepool Art Gallery, Durham Cathedral, Woodhorn Colliery and other private galleries. She set up the Durham City branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild and is currently chair of the North East region.
