A New Normal: The London Knitters

Client: The Royal College of Art

Project background

Paul Wyatt was commissioned by The Royal College of Art to shoot and produce two films which looked at projects which are pioneering new ways of making today. These projects were not just one-off items for individuals, but are establishing a ‘new normal’ where manufacturing is redistributed and mass means ‘by the masses’ not en-masse.

The films were shown at an exhibition at Machines Room called “A New Normal” as part of London Design Festival 2017.

This film looks at the work of London based knitters Layla Chelache and Valentina Karellas.

Filmed and produced by Paul Wyatt
