Winnie Yeung is a textiles and knitwear designer. She is known for her innovative and intuitive combination of material, texture and colour. She is passionate about knitting, working with both hand and machine processes. Her inspiration comes from her appreciation of everyday life, everything she sees, touches and does.
Instead of using pen or acrylics to draw and paint, Winnie uses the knitting machine as her drawing tool, and the different kind of yarn as the medium. Winnie loves experimenting with a range of knitting techniques and yarn combinations. Her first samples become the visual and haptic inspiration for her next works. Her research method is by observing the details of her samples and taking photographs to make further developments and improvements for the following iterations.
Winnie has just graduated from the Royal College of Art completing a Masters in Textiles
