Alison Casserly

I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2011. My final collection was inspired by traditional Fishermen's Gansey jumpers & the heritage of the Fishing industry. I combined domestic & industrial machine knits with hand-knitted edgings & cables & incorporating traditional stitch patterns. Since graduating I have developed a small but unique collection of British yarns, dyed ethically & naturally in rural Lincolnshire with locally gathered dyestuffs. I grow my own woad, weld, coreopsis and other plants to create my range of colours, and produce a small range of accessories, kits and garments in these naturally dyed yarns. I have always been passionate about knitting, & will be holding knitting & crochet workshops at my studio at Unit 6, Fathomworks, The Ropewalk, Maltkin Road, Barton-on-Humber, North Lincolnshire.

Lottie Willis

I graduated from Kingston University, London in 2012, majoring in BA Hons Fashion. I specialise in Womenswear and in particular knitwear and have worked on both industrial and domestic knitting machinery. I was lucky enough to be selected to show at Graduate Fashion Week in June 2012, where my collection was predominantly knitwear and part sponsored by SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. I am also a finalist in the 2012 Knitted Textile Awards.
