On today’s episode, Liz & Zontee chat with artists Ruth Marshall, an artist drawing attention to animal conservation through her knitted animal skins, and Nathan Vincent, an artist focusing on the tension between “masculine” and “feminine”, to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the creative processes of these two fiber artists.
How has their art improved their knitting and crocheting? Why are yarncrafts the media in which they’ve chosen to make their pieces? What is the inspiration behind their art? Find out the answers to these questions, and more.
