Claire Drennan

Claire Drennan is a fiber artist and fashion designer, exploring the intersection of art, craft, and sustainable materials. Drennan’s pieces are wearable, whimsical and versatile, as well as ethical and sustainable. Drennan uses a knitting machine, which is roughly the size of an electric piano and nearly fifty years old. The machine makes use of a binary punch card computer and a knitting carriage that is manipulated manually across a bed of latch-hook needles. Drennan is continually inspired by the capabilities and limitations of this elegant Machine.
