Textile Artist Melissa Warren likes to challenge the boundaries of knitting. Based in the Rhondda in South Wales, Melissa works with knitting machines, combining hand-dying of pieces of knitting and yarns with structural elements to create large sculptural pieces, wearable body art and more traditional accessories.
As an Applied Artist, Melissa is a Craft Council selected member, as well as a member of The Makers Guild in Wales, who operate Craft in the Bay in Cardiff where her work is currently on permanent display.
Throughout her career Melissa's work has been widely exhibited in the UK as well as being exhibited in Europe, Japan and the USA. For full listings of galleries currently showing work please click here.
Melissa is available for Exhibitions, talks and workshops and currently runs Lemon Blues, a small craft shop which is also her workshop in Pentre, Rhondda.
